So the hot temperatures are continuing, and we have been once in a while hitting the seashore in the afternoon to choose gain of the amazing ocean breezes and get out of our sweltering concrete box that is our apartment. Most times we hop on down to the beach front at Dauin, which lies about 20 KM south of Dumaguete. It is not a pristine white sand beach like you see in the vacation brochures, but it suits our functions just wonderful. Entry is about a dollar for the two of us and snorkeling in the marine sanctuary charges about a further greenback every (that is, when the attendant is awake to really acquire the costs).
This past Sunday we went down with Henry from the Youtube channel, Existence Outside of the Sea. He was a massive aspect of my coming to the Philippines, and if you are fascinated in the very same, be absolutely sure to look at out his channel as he has about a gazillion video clips up about lifetime right here. He was accompanied by his girlfriend, April, her niece, and her cute daughter, Maricon, who is about a yr aged. It was Henry’s 1st time snorkeling and he took to it like the proverbial isda (fish) to tubig (water).
April’s daughter – Maricon – so lovable!
Dauin is frequented generally by Filipino families looking for a split from the warmth, and it is awesome to see everybody managing around and possessing a good time. The grills are ordinarily burning and the succulent odor of barbecued beasties is generally wafting about. There is also a tiny store there exactly where you can obtain sodas, espresso, beer and baggage of chips.
Mermaid on my back again
My buddy Ricardo experienced just returned to Dumaguete right after a thirty day period in the States, and he was type plenty of to bring back again some factors for me, 1 of them being a dedicated dive housing for my GoPro 2. I shot some online video with it and the variance involving the dive housing and the typical GoPro housing is evening and day. Examine out the videos beneath if you want to see some fishes (Nemo between them). He also introduced a copy of Borderlands 2 Activity of the Calendar year for my PS3, and very poor Sara has mainly grow to be a Borderlands widow.
We stayed at the seaside right up until about 5 PM then headed back to the metropolis to change on the AC and view the electric powered meter do somersaults (electric power below is about two times the value of the states).
All in all, a different lovely day right here in the Philippines!
