The Hobie Cat “Snapping” Experience.

Standard

This experience truly deserves a separate post from the rest of the things we did at Misibis Bay.  Not only because it was really so much fun but because this experience made an interesting turn.

So, we all decided to try the Hobie Cat Sailing on Day 2. Since, we will basically be on a catamaran with a huge sail without a motor, we are all in the mercy of the wind. And yes, we all bowed down to the skill of our sailor, Kuya Ryan.

Thus, we sailed on.

Cagsawa Church Belfry

I finally came face to face with this famous tourist spot that I have only seen in textbooks. Since what was left of the Cagsawa church is the belfry, it is somehow creepy to note that we are actually standing on the roof of a buried church.

BEFORE

Yep! Happy and relatively “fresh”. Then this is how we looked like after:

AFTER

Sweaty and in a bit of disarray but still smiling. What happened between the before and after made it all worth the time and yes, the pain! 🙂

Day 3 – Sun Kissed!

Standard
Day 3 – Sun Kissed!

The decision to hit the beach was a spur of the moment thing. We just arrived from Church when all of a sudden we all had the same thing in mind – the Beach! So we all made haste and after less than an hour, we were all ready to go!

It was a 40-minute tricycle ride from our front gate to the resort. And I was so glad that we acted on our spontaneity because it’s not everyday that we are greeted by sights like these:

Nothing beats the feeling of being home…
