The weather here on the Island of the Gods has been idyllic the last few days, it’s hard to believe our majestic giant is causing so much attention.
I had a chuckle this morning when a local posted a status on his facebook,
This is why you shouldn’t believe anything u read on the fucked up internet!
I’m currently looking at the volcano and Jack shit has happened it’s still the sleeping monster it has always been #fuckfakenews!
I totally get this, my friend from Torquay sent me a message yesterday advising me that Mount Agung will erupt within a few hours, according to some reports in Australia.
Some reports though have been great, like the one written by Matt Davies from news.com.au titled,
Matt quoted a line from my blog and linked me into his report,
“Hands up who else on the Island feels anxious”
Needless to say I have taken my husband’s carefree advice and relaxed.
“Kehendak alam, what ever will be will be”
I feel extremely proud of the community here on the Island and the outstanding coordination from all levels of government, as detailed in today’s Jakarta Post,
We decided to spend our wedding anniversary today at our favourite small Warung beachside in Sanur on a perfect day in Paradise.
In between eating, swimming and sun baking I was researching information about Volcanos and Mount Agung. I had with me an old fashioned reference, a book.
Bali Sekala & Niskala Volume II by Fred B. Eiseman, JR, is a comprehensive resource on all things Bali. I didn’t have to search far, as the first Chapter is titled,
Island of Bali, Volcanoes, Monsoons, and Tides
Eiseman details fascinating data about the history of our Big Fella’s eruptions, including the benefits to the land after an eruption.
With my knew found interest in finding out more about Volcanoes, Monsoons, and Tides, I asked Froggy who has been a Surfer and Ocean man in Sunur for 30 years.
The short answer from Froggy was NO. There has been no change in the tides what’s so ever over the last week.
Everyone wants so know if and when the Big Fella will roar?
You can furiously ask google for the answer to that question, however our Paradise Island has it’s own schedule,
Only our Balinese Hindu Gods know that answer to that question.
