The Philippines - the shortest trip post ever

 

Moalboal, Philippines - January 2014

 Rain  Rain  Rain

 

 

Philippines 148

 

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.

We enjoyed a local speciality, halo-halo which is a hodgepodge of strange ingredients including shaved ice and ice cream.

lovely photos even though the weather did not cooperate! Especially love the peace of this last shot. I do love sitting in chairs like this and looking out to see what I can see. Hope the weather cooperates more with you the next time.

Too bad you were rained out because it looks like a wonderful place. You guys did what you always do and made the best of it! Love that lavender nail polish 8+)
