Memories of Bali

Updated: Nov 9, 2020

Hi, I thought I’d post a article having stirred myself to actually take some shots today.

The weather is so beautiful here in the UK, and our garden is both verdant and vibrant with colour.

Some time ago we went on a trip to Bali and I acquired a carved figure of Buddha to remind me of the time spent visiting the temples and other sacred sites whilst we were there. It is carved from a river pebble, by an Indonesian craftsman, and took around eleven months to complete.

We were there with our good friends Stan & Liz Clayton and we had an amazing, relaxed time, that we will always cherish.

The Buddha statue has sat in the garden since January 2006 through all the weather that the UK has thrown at it…

So, thanks to Stan & Liz, and thanks to the people of Bali for a wonderful memory

I hope you enjoy viewing the image – Colin
