May all our dreams come true in the Year of the Dragon~!
Xin Nian Kuai Le!! ^__^
A week of planning and here we are! Turtle Island!
3 hrs. drive, the road is worst. Imagine riding a roller coaster hehe. When we arrived at this private resort, we are all hungry and so eager to eat breakfast. The weather is not so nice that day, the sun didn’t even cooperate but we are so all excited what awaits us that day!
And there’s the Floating Cottage!
While they prepared for food, we go around to explore the area that surrounds the resort – I know, it’s all water around lol but what’s so exciting to see are the fishes, sea turtles, jelly fish, star fish and many others!
After eating, fun started as they picked their life jackets ride the kayak while waiting for the pump boat driver to arrive – He’ll be responsible in pulling our cottage up to what they call “The Vanishing Islet”…
While others are just enjoying the view and the food, and the water!
Even puppy *moi-moi* had her kayak moment! =P
When the pump boat driver arrived and starts pulling our cottage , the fun didn’t stopped!
From the resort to the vanishing islet takes almost an hour! +__+ zoomed the camera and there it is!
When we got there, I was so amazed how beautiful it is! White sand, crystal clear water and Star fish scattered around, u can pick as many as u can haha!
Before this islet starts to vanish ( as they say..) it’s time to go. It has been so much fun, in less than an hour, it feels so long! …and yes, I left a mark there!
While going back to the resort, that’s another hour of being in the middle of the sea, everyone felt tired, some slept ( it felt like swinging so possible u’ll fall asleep!) while the rest are just talking about what they are seeing around.
Upon arrival, I tried my luck w/ the Kayak!
It’s very scary for me who can’t swim and not to mention it’s too deep! I even forgot that I am wearing a life jacket, but all scares are inside me and all we did was just laughing and screaming. Unfortunately, we didn’t go as far as others does. It’s really too scaryyy =P . The experience was awesome, no regrets ^__^
After the kayak, we went off to some other part of the resort…and surprisingly we’ve seen this ~↓↓↓ …as well as other types of fishes…
The last part would be going around that bridge on the other side. I’ve been wanting to go there since we arrived =)
Homeward bound. After 2 hrs. on the road we stopped by @ San Lorenzo Ruiz Church…
…finally got home past 6pm and so so tired but all worth it! Thank GOD for the safe trip and a wonderful and memorable experience!~♥♥♥
