We would not NOT go back to the beach. We just have to. Beach round 2!
It was a lazy afternoon but there were so many people, unlike the day before. We looked for a spot and started deciding whether to wait for the sun to go down or to risk some burns.
Karen and Haze decide to rest in the cottage for a while.
Waiting for the sun to lie low
The rest of us waited for Age’s friends.
Waiting for Ge’s friends
After a while, they came and with them was a very cute baby girl with curly hair! I wasn’t able to take a picture of her though.
Later on, I decided to study the shoreline and approach some kids whom I guessed were from the town. I thought that if I really wanted to swim without my friends, I have to befriend locals.
I forgot his name. As you can see, the water is kinda murky because of the strong current.
I played with the waves for a while. Nakakatawa hitsura ko sa mga sumusunod na litrato. Parang ang loser ko. Haha.
My friends (not in the picture) later joined me in the waves
No, I’m not drowning
After a while, I wasn’t enjoying the waves anymore. Naman.
It’s not good for you to be alone. Thank you for reminding me, Lord (makulit lang talaga si Gina)
During these times, Anne was obviously taking pictures and Hazel was playing in the sand.
Yes, Haze heart YOU
Finally, I got out of the water …
I’m dripping, Age
… and started taking pictures too.

Last moments with my earth hour cap. The sea ate it.
Here, I just took random pictures of Anne and Haze who were playing with the waves on the shore. I made up a series of conversations.
Haze is anticipating an exciting ride
Haze, I’ve been in the same sand
I know, right? (sorry for the dark and light colors. different angles, different light compositions. it was nearing sunset at this time)Just enjoy as it comes
Ang saya naman Lord!
Alright Haze. Come on, let’s enjoy this season
What if I stumble Anne?
Do not fear. The Lord is with you
Wait. The sea is becoming calm. Where are the wave?
Wait. Not yet. Not you pala.
Oh, it is true. God has a perfect timing for His best. (anticlimacitc! haha!)
Haze then looks at me …
Bhe, mauuna ako sa ‘yo
Hehe. I love you, Haze. Again, disclaimer: The above “conversations” is a fiction. And so, Anne takes more pictures. I can’t post ALL of them here though.
Anne, I like this shot
Sunset, sea, sand and scrubs
Anne, what does a sunset mean to you
There. I don’t have pictures of what happened after but we (except Karen who looked out for our stuff. Ka, we love you so much!) spent the rest of the time (until it was dark) playing in the big waves!!! It was so much fun! The best part of it? God answered my prayer that afternoon — that I won’t be alone playing in the water; that my friends would have the courage to face the open sea and appreciate the beauty of His waters — whatever condition it may be; and that I would continue to marvel in this time of conversing with Him.
I love you Lord! This is all about you.
Afterwards, we went to a grocery store. We bought ingredients for a fruit float that Haze later on made.
Haze makes fruit-graham float for Fathers’ Day
And while Haze was doing that, I had to wash my wet clothes outside. Argh! (Gina reklamador).
Que horror! I had to wash my wet clothes! Stephanie, nasa’n ka po sa mga panahong ‘to?
So there. Haha! Ang pangit ng closing ng third day noh? Anyway, we were all so tired so after watching NNNN (ahahaha, tired na daw???), we all dropped on our own nooks. Last day na bukas!!! Abangan ang concert! Haha!
