Full moon over Maquinit Hot Springs, Coron

Tuesday, January 24, 2012





Nights are getting stickier. Can’t help but remember my night at the Maquinit Hot Springs. It had been perfect. The reflection of the full moon over the water was just poetic. I can stare at it forever.

lonely sea star




Temperatures’ shooting up, and I can’t can’t get my mind off white sands and sea stars! I can even hear waves crashing while I take my siesta. I hope to see Coron again soon. I miss that starfish and the sunset.

lone surfer of Baler




I miss the seas, the turquoise seas.


Somehow like Baler.

gloomy weather adds drama




I miss the road and the sights. I’m dreaming of rock formations and big crashing waves. I’m dreaming of gloomy skies and chilly weather. Somehow like Baler.

relaxation finally!




We finally checked in here at BBC. It's beautiful, like what their site promised. It's quiet, peaceful, and I love it. Most of all, the people are super nice.


I love Camiguin, the sites and view may not be that spectacular, but the weather, the serenity and most of all, the people made it beautiful.



White Island, Camiguin

dark skies over white island




Whenever Camiguin is mentioned, the White Island comes to mind first and foremost. Like Batanes, I have vivid dreams about this island. So imagine my excitement when the day of our White Island tour finally arrived. However, it has been raining on and off Camiguin for the past days and this day, the skies looked gloomy. But then again, White Island now or never. After 15 minutes, we finally got there. It's chilly, not exactly the perfect weather for frolicking in the white sands like I imagined since I was younger. The picture above is the rain heading towards our direction. A few minutes after scrambling to hide our cameras, the rain finally passed by us. Having nothing to shield ourselves from, we have no choice but endure the battering of wicked raindrops (with sands) and cold winds. It took a good 5 minutes or so before the rain finally left us.


Ok, so not exactly my dreams about this famous sandbar coming true, but heck, it has been fun/crazy memorable.



Giant Clam Sanctuary, Camiguin

aliens to the mountains




The next day is a trip to the Giant Clam Sanctuary. Am not a very good swimmer, you know that. So seeing the giant waves, I opted out of snorkeling. The skies caught my attention. Never have I seen the clouds as fierce as this, couldn’t take my eyes off it, can't get enough shots of it. So I just have to share it with you. Looking like the skies from a sci-fi film don’t you think?



Sunken Cemetery, Camiguin

Sunken Cemetery




Finally, Camiguin! On our first day, we toured around and visited mostly the cold springs that's surprisingly plenty on the island.  Then we decided to hold our sunset shots at that the famous Sunken Cemetery. The skies begun to color and the drama we are hoping for looked promising. Then it rained. HARD. This is the closest we ever got to having a very dramatic sunset at the Sunken Cemetery.
