I live in a coastal city, and the sea isn’t exactly what I would die so much to see. For me it is no more than a commonplace except of course for beautiful resorts in the island. Anyhow, since we had been to the malls and restaurants for our dates, we suddenly opted for a day trip away from the bustles of the city center. Must I also mention the lack of privacy in the city since we would always meet some of my former students in the university or the parents in the kindergarten? 😀 Yep… we we’re not spared even in Boracay! Haha.
A little privacy not too far from the city. What could be better than a beach just outside the metropolis, right? Chris told me he loves the bamboo houses, so I decided we explore the nearby resort with such to offer.
Since I was on leave from work at this time, we had the opportunity to go on a weekday. Which means, less people on the beach, Yay! Going there on a Tuesday, of course, it was a dream come true! We had the place to ourselves. 🙂 Such a delight.
As an added perk, the girl at the reception did not charge us a fee for using the bamboo cottages since we were the only visitors. Finally! The chance to talk about many things without the disruptions!
Since it was quite a hot day, we chose to do a little hut-hopping. C was so happy to finally see these big bamboo houses! Back home, he would fix buildings’ interiors and facades and the huts are something which he always wanted to see up close. Yep, he was studying how these adorable abodes are put together.
Our verdict: This definitely is our dream house in PH!
other than the houses, C couldn’t help but admire the colors of the sea! There must have been something special with the water on this part of the world. The different shades of blue and green are so relaxing. And enticing too.
This was also C’s first time to go on a beach in the Philippines. Some time after lunch, the sun had been forgiving and decided to hide behind the clouds. We took this opportunity to stroll by the sea! His first reaction? “Wow! The water is warm!” which I retorted with, “Of course! The seawater is always warm.”For me, it has always been like this. It was only in that moment I knew that despite my love for geography, I never really read about how cold the seas can get in Europe.
Yep, you bet, C had been soaking his feet in the water all throughout the stretch of our walk by the beach. 🙂
The point we had laughed about? The contrast of the skin color and our differing ways of using our flipflops! 🙂 Comparing our feet after walking, he would snort while telling me I how an expert I am on this flipflops as there was not so much sand on my wet feet. 😀
A date on the beach isn’t a bad idea after all. Other than being a cheaper option to a fancy restaurant date, it helps your “imported” beau to see places where locals go. Believe me, he would love the natural views of the local spots than the fully commercialized resorts. 🙂
Thanks for dropping by! 🙂
