Moalboal, Philippines - January 2014
Rain Rain Rain
We are very fortunate, with all the traveling we do, we have never had a vacation that was completely rained out... until the Philippines.
January is not supposed to be their rainy season. There was an unusual low-pressure storm over most of the islands. Further south there was bad flooding. This could have been an awesome vacation - our resort was lovely.
On the first day we had a little break in the weather mid-morning so we tried to snorkel. I never got in the water as it was far too rough. D was out for about 30 minutes but could not see anything.
He did find a beautiful blue starfish, but that was in knee-deep water.
We created a cool Birthday greeting for our niece...
got in a lot of relaxation and reading...
and took one brief ride on a local taxi... too wet!
We enjoyed a local speciality, halo-halo which is a hodgepodge of strange ingredients including shaved ice and ice cream.
Maybe next time!
