International Seaweed Symposium – Day 3; A day off

It may seem strange that you need a day off after only two days, but it has been so intense that it was badly needed!

The BalticSeaWeed blog went up into the mountains and visited Bali’s botanical garden, where there were plenty of orchids and ferns.

Fern trees are just lovely!

We even got our guide to become totally confused when we stood and looked at a tree and photographed it for five minutes, instead of looking at the temple that we visited, or at least photographed the beautiful flowers. But the tree trunk was full of beautiful lichens, which actually consists of a fungus and an alga.
