It’s been raining non-stop for about two-three weeks now, and everyday it’s been dark and dreary. This kind of weather is conducive for reading and relaxation, but for a working gal like me, it is a battle – a battle with the bed everyday.
Cold, gloomy and moody – you can hear the rain all day long. It’s now the rainy season over here, and all kind of storms and tropical depressions are bound to come until October.
I looked at my Facebook photos and saw the pictures of our vacation last April in Pundaquit, Zambales. Oh last April the weather was hot, we were all sweaty and I felt like a woman in a music video dancing to some steamy tune in Brazil – yeah, that hot. Steamy. But summer is always wonderful – sunny and it’s an excuse to wear roomy and light clothes!
So back to the story. These photos reminded of the last summer, the sun, sand, and surf. Here are some of the photos we took from the beach. 🙂
There wasn’t much to do when nighttime came; so we had a sumptuous dinner, and decided to play UNO cards and drink some sparkling white wine. We also had some BBQs and grilled hot dogs, and some dimsum bites!
We slept early that night, and agreed to wake up very early the next day to walk around the shore. We woke up around 4 in the morning and cooked some breakfast of hotdogs and fish balls. We boiled water for the coffee. I decided not to put photos of us doing those things because we all looked… well, not our best. Haha! In the next hour, we decided to don our bathing suits and walk around the shore. There weren’t a lot of people around so we enjoyed the walk tremendously.
When we got back to our quarters, our parents informed us that we’ll be having a boat ride to Anawangin Cove – a place surrounded by crystal clear blue waters and on the beach, a preserved patch of land full of pine trees. I was told it was a beautiful place! Not one to miss out on all the fun, I hopped in the boat with my sisters, and our friends.
It was some 20-minute ride to Anawangin Cove. Here are some photos I snapped while we were in the boat.
Finally, we arrived at our destination! Welcome to Anawangin Cove!
We didn’t waste any time – we started walking around the shore, frolicked in the water, and took a loooot of photos! 🙂
We braved the slippery rocks, the sharp juts and all that jazz for that strip of white sand beach. The water was clear, and that stretch looked wonderful from afar. Out of curiosity, we decided to go “trekking” barefoot. Ah the pain to get to that stretch of beach! When we were close to the beach, however, some locals on a boat forbade us to go – as that wonderful stretch of pristine beach was out of bounds for tourists. 😦
More photos though!
After an hour or so of basking under the sun, we decided it’s to go back to our quarters again. We rode the boat again.
Until we meet again…
