After 15 hours or more of bus journey, who could resist this fantastic view?
Out of excitement, I took as many pictures as I could,
never care if my battery drained (I got 2 more spare.. yeehaw!),
never care if i hit my camera on the rocks,
never care if the sea water get into my "all-weather" camera.
Palaui Island is at the northeast tip of Luzon, the waves are moderate to somewhat harsh. Be brave to endure the meter high waves as you approach the coastline to Cape Engano.
After the bombarding of waves in the outrigger boat, there is this feeling of a "real winner".
The pristine water, the white sand, the green surroundings, and your picture with the 18th century colonial structure, is your trophy. The Faro de Cabo Engano was first lighted on December 31, 1892.
Exploring the olden settlement, you won't let the a moment pass without taking a picture of everything that catches your attention.
Everything seems so beautiful that there are no words to describe what is in there that you felt. Seeing the Dos Hermanos island and the Camiguin de Babuyanes not far from sight.
The charm of Lighthouses are simply irresistible. Their stories are captivating.
