and finally....! by summerfield

and finally....!

had a day tour of the islands on honda bay in palawan island. the skies were a wonderful blue and the clear waters of the sea mimicked the skies' colours. this is one of the beautiful photos i managed to snatch before i went for a swim before lunch was served.

lunch was served on broad banana leaves - charcoal broiled giant squid, grilled tuna, steamed shrimp, crabs, and steamed vegetables dipped in shrimp fry paste - eaten without utensils, the island way. sat alone on the sand whilst eating, taking in the sounds of the sea and the song of the waves. makes me think this is where retirement should take place.

thank you for your comments and apologize for not having to reciprocate your kindness as internet connections around here, due to a weather disturbance yesterday, got screwed up. two more days before i return to manila.

sooc but for the framing and name tag from picknik.
really like the alternating colored sails out there; nice how they break up all the blue. what a gorgeous spot you landed yourself in. i think i should have stuffed myself into your purse. love how the seaweed floats away with the waves. REALLY nice shot.

i think you could have all 65 of your followers there with you. between your writing and your pics, we'd all jump on a plane and be there in a flash if it were possible.
