....it's raining.....really raining.....harder then any wet-season rain.....weird the  nature is.....on it's own schedule.....answers to nobody.....not a respecter of persons.....it just is......a power greater then me.....I know if I put the rain gear on I'll be the only motor bike surfer in the water at Ulu's.....meaning no sane person would leave their house......not sure what I will do as having Uluwatu to myself with a little swell running sounds like heaven.....lightening flash and thunder roar......yesterday was full moon.....I had a morning surf but my back was playing up...and interfering with my morning surf.....it hurt to get up on the board....then I couldn't move properly.....it was a hassle....still managed to paddle around for 2 1/2 hours.....I hadn't been shooting any water shots lately....I also heard it was good the day before.....so I went back to ulu's with the camera gear and went out for a swim....after about an hour I noticed my back was better, no pain at all.....swimming around worked like a natural chiropractic session.....worked with Alik my favorite subject.....there was a lot of current.....not great conditions either.....so all in all it was fair.....I was going to surf ith the boys up at Secrets after my swim.....but spent time at the warung with Celeste and Jonathan.....chatting with the happy hindu's and just chilled....our plan was to go and see the kacuk dance(which i had yet to see in all my years coming to Bali.....) at Uluwatu temple......and we did just that.....also the monkeys are notorious pests at the temple.....stealing what ever they can grab....ie...glasses, water bottles, necklaces, earrings, kids toys, sandals....and anything else they could get their little hands on.......I am usually scared of the monkeys.......not today though...I stared a few down, showing my teeth and hissing(a big no no) and even poking a couple that ran by me on the wall.....so full moon at Uluwatu Temple was a nice event.....then dinner at Warung Ungasan and home for an episode of 24 and to bed.....it's been 5 days no internet.....surf was actually really good this morning....brought the 5' 10" white diamond and had a blast.....3'-4' and glassy.....started at the main peak and ended at the main peak....with a bit of time at Temples in between....just had a nap.....now going to Big jims for round 2.....afternoon low tide Secrets with the potato chip.......
