My childhood may be over, but that doesn’t mean playtime is. ~Ron Olson
This water palace near Candidasa in Eastern Bali was our last stop of the day and a perfect way to wind down. We didn’t have to don ourselves with our sarongs and waist scarves to be admitted.
Tirta Gangga, “Water of the Ganges,” is a maze of pools and fountains, surrounded by lush gardens with stone carvings and statues throughout. It is possible to walk on some of the carved stone pillars in one of the pools as my daughter and Photographer Ron quickly found out.
Like giant chess pieces, these statues dotted the pool while dragons and cows watched over or spewed their steady stream of water. Fountains added to this lush and refreshing scene.
This shadow of my daughter makes me smile. Oh to be a kid again.
