Um, I did not truly choose this photo…..
Holy Crap, I Noticed Dolphins!!
Yep, it is legitimate. Now, Sara and I headed up to Bais, which is found in a significant harbor north of Dumauete City. The trip was basically for the organization that she functions for, Worldwide Workplace Will work, and I was lucky sufficient to be regarded as a household/buddy and got invited along for the experience. Coololicious. We fulfilled up at 5 AM exterior the company’s headquarters on Rizal Boulevard with a frozen carrot cake from Sans Rival in hand (a pot luck lunch was part of the excursion and that was our contribution). When we got underway, I zipped up to Bais on the YBR and Sara escorted our fast defrosting cake on the jeepney that was chartered for the vacation.
Ah, but I am getting a bit forward of myself and will cover the journey in far more depth in my next website update. The bottom line was we saw dolphins – lots and lots of dolphins! And I received some actually superior video clip footage with the GoPro. (I was a little bit involved about the video I received simply because I could not keep in mind if I had taken off the lens cap or not – damn you, old age!!) Not to be concerned – I will be enhancing that as properly and placing it up on the Youtube channel.
On the exact same working day that I did the Environment Fitness Gym video clip, I also took some video footage of the Governor Leonard G. Teves Aquacenter which is situated correct near Siliman College. The Aquacenter is a really spectacular sports activities intricate that boasts a obvious, 50 meter swimming pool and a diving pool with 3, 5, 7, and 10 meter diving platforms. I have not applied the latter as gravity has not often been my buddy but I use teh pool on a semi-common foundation, carrying out a mile there (36 laps) a pair of moments a 7 days to complement my gymnasium time. The Aquacenter has a pretty strict costume code and guys and girls are expected to use unique bathing suits – no “board shorts” or revealing bikini or 1-piece bathing fits are permitted. It is a government operate organization, so it’s quite conservative. Fellas have to don skin-limited Speedos (shorts, not “banana hammocks”, but really don’t fret – I didn’t include a pic of me in my none-much too-flattering Speedos!
Yeah, that is not me.
When university is out – as it now is – the pool can be a minor hectic, with very little times and dongs (children) searching for some solace from the relentless Summer months warmth. When college is in session, the location is really a great deal deserted, and you generally get your own giant swimming pool for 20 pesos ($.22) a day. Not way too shabby. I employed to go in the early evening, when the solar is location to the west, the moon is soaring in the east, and the swallows are skimming about the water chowing down hapless bugs. It’s quite great and rather elegant, as I pointed out in the movie.
50 meter pool with up to 8 lanes for lap swims.
H2o is pretty a great deal crystal crystal clear.
The diving platforms are also really awesome, and maybe sometime I will gather up the testicular fortitude to hop off of one. I used to soar in quarries and off highway bridges, so I really do not know why I am so hesitant to test it. Almost certainly that whole stone cold anxiety point.
I ain’t received the guts.
Anyhow – if you are in Dumaguete and hunting to get some swimming on, check out out the Teves Aquacenter. Just make absolutely sure you received your Speedo bathing shorts!!
1 last thing. In the US, vehicles and trucks are painted in special shut rooms in autobody shops. Here in the Philippines, they just roll it out to the road, slap on some tape and newspaper and have at it.
