My hubby Peter took my first shot at Aguirangan Island. That's Mayon Volcano behind me from afar.
I can't believe I'm blogging for three days straight now. I'm on fire! LOL! Unfortunately, I haven't been sleeping much which is bad. I guess something has got to give if I want to continue blogging. I can't just give up my work nor my time with my Bes Hanz nor my role as a wife, right? If only we can have more than 24 hours in a day... Anyway, I also just want to finish as many posts as I can since I promised myself that I'll finish my travelogues before the year ends and I still have so many. Plus, I'm not so sure if there'd be wifi at the 2012 International Youth Seminar on Life and Ch'an in Taiwan. The first week (July 18-25) is jampacked with seminars, activities and tours, while the second week (July 26-Aug. 3) will be devoted to a lot of meditation.
Anyhoo, this is the 4th part of my Bicol - Caramoan adventure series. After visiting the Deer Farm in Ocampo, Camarines Sur, we headed to Sabang Port to ride the boat we rented that will bring us to the Caramoan Peninsula. It was 10:30 am.
The boat we rented from Sabang Port was a private one so instead of docking at the next port (Guijalo port), and instead of directly heading to Lingating Beach Resort in Tahub where we checked in for the duration of our stay, we dropped by one of the nearest islands from Sabang Port first --- Aguirangan Island.
We took this trip during summer so the water wasn't that choppy. Some of us took a nap while I soaked in the beauty of the surrounding islands and white sand beaches we passed by.
The boat ride took about an hour from Sabang Port to our first island stop - Aguirangan island. The island's name literally means "daanan" in Tagalog or passageway. True enough, boats usually pass by this island on the way to the other more majestic islands of the Caramoan Peninsula so it's better to dock here first and enjoy what Aguirangan island has to offer rather than go straight to the other islands in Caramaon and then come back the next day. It's just more efficient this way. (^_^)
Finally, at 11:30 am, our boat docked at the white sand beach of Aguirangan island. It was nearing lunch time but we didn't care. We decided to take a dip and soak in the sun. We'll just have our lunch later in Tahub island where Lingating Beach Resort is. I guess we were just all so very excited to finally don our bikinis and frolic in the crystal clear waters of Caramoan.
So the shutterbugs got busy clicking away their DSLRs while the models posed for pictures hehe.
Peter and I enjoyed some alone time snorkeling too.
I remember feeling so happy during this trip. I couldn't wait to explore Caramoan some more!
Til my nest Caramoan post!
