Walking bridge joins Echo and Pererenan beaches

Plans are made, adjusted and negotiated, and then finally the workers are called so that something real comes of the plans. In this case its a lovely walking trail and bridge that connects two beaches.

The first of two bridge support runs are in place. The view across to Echo Beach.

Up close and personal with half of the bridge support. The view across to Pererenan Beach.

On the Echo Beach side there’s a lovely, curving path that leads to local food vendors, the famed La Brisa restaurant, and seafood grill operators.

Back at Pererenan Beach, only 800 meters from Ohana, workers are finishing up the concrete tile floor for a semi-circular welcome area. This entire project is shaping up nicely.


Pererenan Beach Development Continues

The project to connect Pererenan Beach with Echo Beach continues daily. When I first reported on the development project there were a few dozen massive rocks moving into place.

A couple of months later a walking trail was being formed:

Now there’s red brick finish work underway, and across the large stream you can see the concrete bulwark that will support the future walking bridge:

The future marriage of Echo Beach and Pererenan Beach is a bright one indeed.


A very special Balinese experience

Our builder, Wayan, is a leader in his local village and twice a year hosts a Balinese ceremony.

Wayan invited Shelly and I to a post-ceremony celebration of music, dance and Balinese cuisine at his home. It was a privilege to be a part of his extended family. Everyone was generously and genuinely willing to open their hearts to us.
