Photo Diary: Anawangin and Capones Island 2014

Summer’s ending and the rainy season is fast approaching. But before anything else, I want to share with you the experiences we had and of course the captured memories we took.

Last May 24, my boyfriend and his cousins decided to go to Zambales. Yes, it’s kind of short notice that’s why I didn’t have time to prepare that much. We left home at 2am and had at least 3 stopovers and bought our food on our way. So technically, we arrived at Zambales by 2pm – stopovers, buying of supplies, fetching a friend in Cabanatuan and asking of directions considered.

Pundaquit Island. Some stay here since the view is nice as you can see. You also have the choice to go to different islands by renting the boats there. And without a doubt, we choose the latter. Explore the other islands of course!

Who’s excited to ride a boat!?

Sorry for our super excited faces. Most of us are first timers, haha!

Along the way, you’ll see different rock formations and mountains. Really really nice, and good job to the people who preserve and take care of this place.

And our choice? Anawangin Cove!

This is what WE call the Red Sea. Haha. Don’t worry, it’s not polluted. They said it rained the night before that’s why the soil from the mountains went down to the lake.

Assembled our tents and cooked our lunch before anything else!

And after an hour or so…. we’re wet! Haha! Not because we went to the beach, but because it rained! hahaha. So guys, please buy a waterproof tent. I guess this marks our first camping experience, hehe.

After fixing and settling our things again, we headed to the beach to enjoy the afternoon. No pictures, sorry! :P

To maximize our stay there, we set up a bonfire. It’s my first time again, haha. Thanks to our neighbor, Kuya Joseph, for helping us to set this up.

**You can buy the woods there, I guess it’s P200. Be sure you have the Butane Gas and the torch!

Grilled hotdog and ate our dinner before calling this day off.

Ate our breakfast and headed to the beach for some sight seeing!

Amazing Anawangin!! ♥ Really really beautiful..

We went to the left side of the island (facing the beach) to see a nicer perspective of the Cove. This isn’t in our plan so basically, this explains why I’m still wearing my PJs, haha!

Our next stop: Capones Island. This is included in the package we had together with our boat transfers from and to Anawangin and Capones Island.

What is in this island?

Beautiful rock formations and fine white sand. This is my first time to see and be in a white sand beach!

The super clear water. I love the colors!! I love how the sky kisses the ocean. Snorkeling is a must in this place!!

And lastly, the network connection, haha!! You saw it right. I know it’s weird to take calls when you’re in vacation, apparently, we didn’t know that there is no signal in Anawangin Cove. Too late for us to make our calls and messages to inform our parents that we safely arrived in the island. Though I’m into no-signal island because you get to appreciate more of God’s gift when there are no social networking sites to check time after time, right? :)

And there! We left Capones Island after 15 minutes and went back to Anawangin. Enjoyed the rest of the day at the beach before going back to the city.

Really had fun in that quick weekend vacation! If only I can go back and forth here during weekends, haha! There are still so many things that we can do here so I guess I’ll be visiting this place again!! Can’t wait for that day to come :)

*Most of the photos are taken by Samsung S5, my new baby! I didn’t edit or add filters in the photos for you to see how good the camera of S5 is :)
