Who needs a whole day when you can do it in a half day? Yes, I don’t like very short travels, but sometimes its all we need.

We woke up at 5am and it was so dark. We waited for 15 minutes at the bridge and when there is no sign of the sun at all, we went back to the room and waited for another 20 minutes.

When we were walking back to the bridge after another 20 minutes, we saw the sky is already in its work of art.

After eye-lusting with the sunrise, we did not go back to the room, instead, we explore the surrounding and this is what we found.

Local beach!

I gave my camera to Eds to hold because she don’t want to swim and man, we do have a lot of fun!

Eds do the capturing. She told me it’s the only setup she knew for the camera and boy, was it amazing?!

We went back to our room to wake up our other friend, Maribel and to have a breakfast.

Our small abode!

Found these kittens by the patio.

And I am not sure if she’s the mother. A snob one.

After our breakfast, we explore the fisherman’s village. The driver told us that these are the houses of the fisherman that is why it is called Fisherman’s village. The houses are beautiful!

And wait, we saw mango trees full of (mango) fruits! Of course, haha.

We really want to have one of these mangoes so we called out the house and this little girl went out with a stick.

And yay! She got one each of us.

Thank you to this family who shared us their mango fruit fresh from the tree.

After exploring this village, we head down to the street which goes to the local beach.

While walking, we heard this loud cry that came on top of the tree and this is what we saw.

After exploring this area, we sat for a while and eat our raw mango which we partnered with salt that we took from one of the food center (we asked from the Auntie, of course).

At 12noon, the taxi driver arrives to bring us back to the terminal.

It was a very short break but we had a lot of fun. Have you had a short break before? Try it, sometimes, its all you need.
