We all woke up early today to prepare to swim at Potipot Island. We booked a beachfront room at Isla Vista, so this is the view from outside.
We took a quick swim at the beach in front of Isla Vista while we waited for our nanay to return. After a light breakfast, we headed out to Potipot Island aboard a boat.
There were a zillion people there (okay, more like a thousand perhaps, but you know what I mean 😛 ). After I went with Ken and some of his online gamer friends (who happened to be taking a vacay there too) to check out a camping site around the island, we headed back to the area where we left our nanay with our bags, only to find out they were lucky enough to reserve the table right in front of the boat unloading area. Hahahah 😀
Ken, his BFF Jenn and our nanay headed off to start grilling for our lunch. Ken made his own marinade and sauce for everything. We were all excited to eat with our bare hands. 😀
We stayed in the water for HOURS! Even with sunscreen on, we came out NOGNOG. 😀
I just wanted to say this: I know how to swim, but I’ve been scared since I started to smoke and couldn’t hold my breath longer than 30 seconds under water. I’m trying to work on that, and this time, I was able to relax and let myself float on water, which I haven’t done in the longest time.
I was by the shore ’cause this was when the tide was already rising and me mga biglang lalim na areas agad.
Next time, I’ll work on my breathing ’til I’m confident and gutsy enough to swim again. First, I need to officially stop smoking.
Yeah, I suck. 😛
I can’t wait to go back to Potipot island next time, when there’s less people. 🙂
