Pelabuhan Ratu Beach. Indian Ocean

While we were at the Ocean Queen Resort, there was a low pressure system off the northern Australian coast which unfortunately, made the Indian Ocean flare up.
This section of coastline in Java has a very dangerous reputation, and during the week we were there, it was not safe for swimming.

The photos do not show how thunderous and heavy the waves were.
Here is GJ reliving his youth (he grew up on the surf side of an island!). Face book friends will have a real laugh at his hijinks!

This is the beach directly in front of the resort, each bungalow has it own beach hut. Chelsea actually slept out there all night our friend, her ex school teacher! It was a bit too much for Georgia, the crashing waves reminded her of the Bali trauma. She is going to have another try next time we visit.

These are the littlies frolicking on the little beach next to main resort beach. Ankle deep water was enough to knock them over so we only spent a few minutes here before heading back to the pool.
