From Camiguin to Cagayan de Oro. Absolutely nothing amazing but constantly entire of surprises. Just 111 kilometers from mattress to bed – nothing at all else, but …
We still left our property at 9h30 immediately after a fantastic breakfast with a last genuinely excellent coffee for a lot of days (at minimum, we assumed so). The short 20 kilometers trip to Benoni port had been without any surprises. Turning all around the past curve in San Roque, we saw M/S Kalinaw leaving the port close to 10 o’clock. In the port we figured out that the next ferry for Balingoan will depart at midday and tickets had been out there from 11:30. What now?
We went consuming an early lunch at Taguines Lagoon. No, not the normal J&A Fishpen – we went on the other aspect of the lagoon to the inn with the 3 interestingly shaped guest bungalows in front. Time did operate away and we experienced finally been in a hurry to consume our chicken and rice and return to the port.
Our ferry currently waited for us. It experienced been the newest Super Shuttle Ferry, variety 21. Effectively, new is relative. The selection 21 is new to Camiguin and it is freshly painted. It is now the swiftest ferry in Camiguin. It does Benoni-Balingoan in about 50 minutes. It looks that this ferry also sails Monday and Wednesday involving Camiguin and Bohol in a bit additional than 3 hours.
On the ferry we were being authorized to use the VIP place in front of the ship. This space is definitely a enjoyment, with air problem, great upholstery, thoroughly clean and even with a flat display screen TV set. Sad to say we could not examine the crafting on and more than the entrance door to this home. But it provides some hints about the origins of this ferry.
We did the remaining 82 kilometers of street to Cagayan de Oro in a bit significantly less than two hrs. Visitors had been just appropriate – not quite fluid but also not as well congested. In a lot of pieces this significant road is now enlarged to 4 lanes. Possibly 2 lanes for drying rice and corn and 2 lanes for the standard blend of large vehicles, buses, vans, automobiles, motorbikes, motorelas, tricycles and pedicabs.
As usual we slept in “our” place at “Natures Pensionne” and had our meal at “Sentro”. Tomorrow, the real new Mindanao trip will start out.
