Bohol,  Philippines

a quiet sunrise in bohol

i must be a loner at heart.  las cabanas’ crowds almost singlehandedly ruined sunsets for me and while bohol’s sunsets were quiet amazing, i wanted more solitude.  haha and i woke up at 430 one morning to head out to catch the sunrise.

we still had our scooter rental so our plan was to drive to a beach on the southeast portion of the island to catch the sunrise in full.  unfortunately the sun was already poking through so we walked down to the deck of the chill bar and set up shop there.  aside from the handful of staff members who were setting up the breakfast area, everybody else was sound asleep… even the dogs!  we plopped our chairs up to the railing and sat in silence for most of it.

kinda ominous, kinda peaceful
around 540am, the sun shows up on filipino time
the moon was still poking out at 6am
set up the gopro for a time lapse which i still have yet to process
one of my fav shots of the philippines. it summarizes so much of our trip so far…
not mountain dew
worth getting up early

by the time we headed back up for a nap, the dogs were up and about.  this little guy was playing hide and seek with me.

i see you mang
umm.. yeah i still see you
getting better

could use some more work on his technique…

also walked past one of the gardener’s picking lettuce for the salad at breakfast

doesn’t get much fresher than that

which was a mango, pineapple, parmesan mix with honey dijon dressing

i haven’t quite figured out the colouring pattern with the waffles. maybe the next time…
