A relatively wordless post today – I think this cheerful Lombok fishing boat speaks for itself.

Where:

Senggigi beach on the island of Lombok, Lesser Sunda Islands group, Indonesia

    Thanks guys :)
    I do like those maps. (Actually, I like all maps). The photo is from a few years ago.

    Lovely! I spent sometime on Lombok a few years ago, and remember this beach.

    Nice colours. Wonder if there is an international law defining the RGB for small fishing boats?

    ItalianNotes – You know, I had to look up RGB. And yes, I think perhaps there is such a law :)

    What a curious angle. Was it about to be slid out to sea?

    I saw many of those same fishing boats around Bali. Aren’t they pretty?

    Love the angle. Looks like it’s just about to take off or climb a wave.
    Nice shot, Sophie!

  15. The boat looks like it’s teetering on the sand! Great colors. The map was a great inclusion.

    Nice! I have seen plenty of boats like this one in Indonesia (though I haven’t been to Lombok yet). They are always so striking– bright colors and interesting shapes.

    Michael – It’s a few years ago, so I don’t remember what time of day this was. The boats did seem to be lying like that in the late afternoons though, so I would guess it had just been pulled in.

    Denise – Very pretty, indeed.

    Inside Journeys, Debbie and Jenna – thanks :)

    Sooo pretty and yes, cheerful. I wish I was there right about now. So cold in Berlin!

    Cheryl – Too right! It’s wet and chilly up here as well. A few days on an Indonesian beach would be wonderful right now :)

    That’s SOME PARKING! I’m not going to ask who parked it, but it wasn’t me!

    It really is a happy, peaceful photo… How did you get to Lombok, Lesser Sunda Islands group, Indonesia?
    Do you have a post on your travels there? I am interested! It looks like a beautiful place to visit! -shelly

      @Journey of a Jungle Girl – Thanks :)

      I don’t have a post on our travelling in Lombok, but I’ve been meaning to find my notes and publish one. It’s been a few years. We flew from Singapore, took about 2 hours, if I remember correctly. It was a lovely little island, similar to Bali in many ways – there was even a Monkey Forest, but with less aggressive monkeys than the one in Bali.

    Just catching up with all the comments I missed. Been busy thumbing/tweeting/facebooking and that newfangled G+1 thinginging. Phew… sorry I took so llong to get back. I love wordless photo posts; my specialty. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely shot with fantastic colors. I also really appreciate NOT writing about Bali. ;) I saw the map (nice touch) and it was a relief.

    I”m looking around at places to take some time off, but it seems like people only go to Bali. I’m sure that’s not the case, so I really appreciate a shot of Lombok. Any other posts about travel elsewhere in Indonesia? I’d love to visit and get off the beaten track a bit. I know Indonesia is huge, and I don’t want to limit it to just the one tourist island.
