I woke up to a wonderfully fine morning on this beach. Which, prompted my itchy feet to walk the stretch as far (and as long) as I could. To see what? Nothing really, just a walk by the water’s edge, excited to see the calm waters and feel that faint breeze from the sea. But I did encounter many curious things to fill the brain?! Here we go…
6:15AM. Mothers, fathers and children just hanging around on the beach. Some may still have been half asleep but already transplanted by their feet to this lovely place...
When I looked to my left, this was the wonderful twilight view…
When I looked to the right, this was the even more wonderful view…
I already wanted to go for a walk towards wherever this beach leads, but I thought that might take time, so I decided to wait for breakfast, about to be served anyway!
That little speck of an islet in front of Ambulong is called White Island. Hmm, again…
Seated by the al fresco tables, under a trellis, I played with my lowly digicam’s zoom.
And my breakfast came… yep, corned beef, fried rice, egg and hot-choc (Milo Sachet!)
Mind you, I am getting to like traveling more because of breakfasts! I don't know... I eat breakfasts when I'm on a roam, while I never even glance at it when am home! The doctor says ‘always eat a heavy breakfast’, therefore, I better be going places everyday of my life, so that I keep eating breakfasts, and "der Arzt" will be "zufrieden"!
Teka, masarap ba? Did I like this breakfast? Ah eh, just see my plate! Purefoods kasi!
Let’s go have a walk?
Scrutinize this lovely scene... as I said above, all kids eventually took a plunge!
Hey there is me! Shadow nga lang hehe!
Lovely morning bonding…
That one flat on the sand is also a girl, I think (long hair kasi). Naka-jeans?
Boats also still asleep? Probably!
These students are doing some kind of a cleanup brigade. Some of them, at least!
Fun to see too many cottages lining this beach! Each one can fit groups of people.
Here are 3 of them… middle cottage's signage says “Luz&Vic CAFEHAN SA AROMA”
That dude on the right is walking his bike and I saw plastic bags hanging on the bike.
I continued walking… just enjoying the things I saw…
Until I realized there was no more road parallel to the beach and the place felt like it was not anymore inhabited by humans. Duuu!
So I merrily walked back to where I could see the concrete road parallel to the beach. Had to temper my zest to walk even onwards lest I reach Mamburao hahaha! But seeing that concrete road, I got curious on what vehicles pass there, so I checked it out. For a while… there was none.
Then a tricycle came, probably on its way to town center, and driver stopped to ask if I wanted a ride. I don’t know what came to me, I said yes and hopped on!
While on this trike, I realized I must have walked already too far. How far? Way beyond the airport vicinity! Ah, see this video as we traversed the road back to Sikatuna Beach Resort – note video did not start from the time I rode on this trike, and it finishes way before the resort!
Well, I enjoyed the long walk… and ride back!
More of this roam in the 'next issue'!
