|Bruschetta was served at our table each evening. Tom ate my portion as he often does when such items are served.|
|This mixed seafood dish was my favorite over the four dinners.|
|Avocado and feta salad.|
|Although this doesn't appear to be sweet and sour pork, it was indeed. Tom said it was delicious ordering it two consecutive nights. Note what's beneath the green cone in the next photo.|
|The server removed the green cone to display the rice beneath.|
|I ordered these roasted vegetable skewers along with the yellow fin tuna salad shown above and in the next photo below.|
|This rare tuna salad I ordered was exceptional.|
|Western style omelet bar where made to order omelets are prepared to perfection.|
Management had encouraged us to notify them of any less than ideal food or service. Long ago we accepted the realities of "island time" as we had no need or desire to mention that which is merely cultural in Bali...no rush, easy does it.
Many tourists fail to accept such cultural differences when coming from a hustle and bustle lifestyle in their home country. They want something and they want it now. This is not to imply service was slow at Puri Bagus Resort & Spa. It wasn't. It was gracious and done in a manner that never made us or the attentive staff feel rushed or stressed.
|Tom's said his French onion soup was divine. He hadn't had this soup in quite some time.|
|Last night I ordered this platter of three types of fish including John Dory, halibut and snapper with a few prawns and grilled squid rings. Fabulous!|
|Tom's Western style dinner last night; steak, onion rings and twice baked potato. Again, he passed me his veggies.|
|Tom's dessert...crème brule, a round profiterole cookie with a white frosting base and bits of fresh fruit. He enjoyed every morsel.|
Stay tuned, folks. We'll be back tomorrow with lots more photos and new "Sightings on the Beach in Bali."
A special thanks to all of our loyal readers for traveling with us wherever we may go! We always feel your presence at our side. Happy day!

|Savusavu, on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji is a busy little village. We loved going to town to shop at several locations for our week's groceries. Many locals and some tourists take buses to other parts of the island. Our driver Rasnesh, took care of all of our transportation needs. For more details, please click here.|
