So I finally manage to go to the beach this year.
One of my cousins came in from Germany, fleeing the winter there for the relative warmth of his native land. And he decided to drag the majority of Clan Duck to the Beach - which we all accepted with delight. Anilao Beach in Batangas province is known for its dive spots but it's also one of our easier-to-access white sand beaches. It's a godsend especially for people who can't afford the pricey tickets to Boracay or Palawan - great tourist spots yes, but you'd have to board a plane from Manila to get to the provinces they're located in.
The above pic is a shot I lucked into. I stare at it long enough and I feel like I'm back on that beach again, with just the right amount of warm and cold, the sun not too blazing hot, the ocean breeze cool and sweet. :)
