Beach day fun.

We went to the beach the other day. I guess this is one of the many perks of living in the probinsyas. The beach is a mere 15 minutes away, and it doesn’t take a great deal of planning to get there! It started out as a gloomy, cloudy day – which was perfectly fine because none of us brought any sunblock. Later on though, the clouds would part from time-to-time, allowing the sun to peek through. So by lunch time, the sun was gleefully blazing down on our bare backs and shoulders. But nothing would stop us from having our beach day fun! We feasted on boiled bananas, salted fish, some rice, bread, and left-over chicken for breakfast, and ate the same thing for lunch. We rode out on a banana boat! It wasn’t my first time on one, but it was my first time off! I hit the water pretty hard- all of us did actually. It was a painful experience indeed! I thought I broke a rib or something, and on the way home, there was talk of getting x-rays! We played sung-ay in the water- a game where 2 pairs try to knock each other off whilst seated on their partners’ shoulders. My team won! And we took a whole lot of pictures! I brought my camera along and grabbed the opportunity to practice. I was able to take a few good shots! It was the perfect way to unwind and de-stress, worrying about nothing except not getting enough salt in our hair and not getting enough pictures. We all came home with our skins sun-burnt, and a couple of shades darker (not to mention redder), hearts considerably lighter, and faces aglow with laughter. It was happiness- all the way!
