Ahh, Summer!

Summer started while we were out on field. All throughout the morning, the beach was a constant presence. We could hear the waves--could even feel the soft breeze--from where we were. But there was work to do, and the beach had to take a backseat.

At 1p.m., when the crowd started thinnning out and nothing remained of the just-in-from-the-sea lunch, we rounded the corner and there it was: the white sands of Paguriran.





It was low tide when we got there. The bigger outcrop--which on high tide becomes a lagoon--was within wading distance. The powder-fine sand was a treat for sore feet. The afternoon sun was just perfect, and so was the catch.




Paguriran could very well be Boracay, except that it has none of the the crowds, the amenities, the nightlife and the commercialism of it all. Which is just perfect, if you ask me.

For the past days, we'd been drenched by heavy rains. With a quick trip to the beach and an hour of watching the turn of the tide, summer is finally here!

This is my kind of beach. I think that big fish should be perfect for a lunch at the beach =). We're still waiting for spring here.

The beach look serene, where in Sorsogon is it located? Lampas pa ba ng Rizal beach yan?

Hi Kayni! If you don't like crowds and fashion getting in the way of a natural high, this really is your kind of beach!

Hi Rudy! The beach is right here in Sorsogon City, although it's quite a distance from the city proper. Iba ang daan papuntang Rizal, but Paguriran shares the same coastline, which probably explains why they have the same powder-fine sand.
