I've gone to this place many times before, last was during the early nineties. It was still not so developed back then. More to that 90's story, we went as a big group of families,friends and classmates.We stayed overnight, not knowing the possible dangers as told to us by the boatmen. My brother-in-law and cousin sighted a "white lady" too! (honest) So much has happened that 2-day trip, if I remember right it was around my birthday Dec 20-22,1992. But it was a wonderful trip with so much adventure stories to talk about for years!
So imagine my excitement to see the place again, with a small group this time, with my cousins,my cousin's friends and my hubby! Thanks to my cousin's ADHD, we went there unexpectedly ^^,
I'm sharing a few of the pictures I took on our recent "impromptu" trip.
Familiar scene? Yes, that's where they shot the movie, "Dyesebel".
Below, is your usual first stop, Governor's Island with the viewpoint deck above. Get ready to climb the 123-step uphill!
Below, a picture for my Flickr entry
Below, taken at Marcos Island (Take nothing, leave nothing) In the picture is my hubby (if you can find him), who went the trek uphill.
That's what I personally call The Secret Island. Well, it used to be during the 90's. One of the three stops back then. Now it's just an option to stop by. It's a clean place and well-maintained.
Below is the Bat Island, and it was my first time to know this part of the Hundred Islands existed. The bats were sleeping upside down and humming a strange, creepy sound which reminded me of the vampire movies like "Twilight"! What's more, the bats were humongous than what we normally would see in our town. Their size may be approximately as big as a regular cat! Whoa!
I thank my balikbayan- cousin for taking us here. Thanks to the fun stories again and the barrel of laughs. I'd say this trip is a great remembrance!
