We were in a pictorial mode while waiting for our guide to get the balsa for us to cross the swamp. We also had a good view of the light house.
At dumating na ang second batch na pictorial mode rin.
As soon as everybody was there; we continued crossing the bamboo bridge that headed us back to the shore, then the rain comes in. Pa suspense pa pero bumuhos na din ng malakas, good thing we are near the lighthouse already and gave us some shade.
Then I realized wala pla akong shot ng lighthouse na buo; na excite agad seeing the view on top. I really appreciate the place more after seeing a 360 degrees view.
After the lighthouse, we packed up and get ready on going back to Sablayan. Gusto na naming maligo. We also visited Pandan Island and had our decent lunch at last. We also had some free time for snorkelling on the island.
Because of its accessibility, there were more people in Pandan not like APO Reef. We also went to the right part of the island na dadapa ka lang sa shore may mga corals na, water is just waist deep. Here are some shots while just standing on the shore and pointing my underwater camera down for a good view.
Spot the little fishy
Ken with the blue starfish (don’t worry we put it back immediately)
After exploring Pandan Island, we went to Sablayan to find place to stay. Everybody was wishing to get a good bath and rest. Our feet brought us to Emily hotel which is just near the market place. Since it’s the closest to where we are, we agreed to checked-in. How much? It’s 150 per pax for a fan room. Not bad at all. What we like about it is they cook good food also, paluto ka lang if feel mo mamalengke ng gusto mong kainin. Or you can request and they will go to the market immediately to buy it for you. The place is just right for the price. It’s clean and they are very accommodating.
Nag bonding session muna kami that night before matulog. That was the time I really felt so glad I joined this trip. Less expenses since you are in a group, different people with different views but new experience and new friends.
A friend asked me this when I told her about the trip. “May ganun, ganun palang lakad noh, talagang hindi kayo magkakakilala?” I smiled and said yes, and that makes the trip more fun and exciting.
No plans yet on the next day but sinipag kaming maglakad sa initan.
Abangan ang last day of exploring Sablayan before we go home.
