Things I will Always Remember at Chateau Du Mer, Boac

1. The chirping songs and cacophony of sounds of the birds(Mayas)as they fly from tree to tree looking for worms

2. Native fishes and tilapias thriving well on my creek that meanders to the ocean

3. Sunset and coral reefs at low tide seen from the balcony of the beach house

4. A Reflection of an almost full moon as seen from the balcony of the beach house

5. Thousands of fireflies illuminating the firefly tree on a moonless night, just like a Chistmas tree with flickering miniature lights

6. Monitor Lizard ( bayawak) looking for chicken or duck eggs. He looks scary, but actually harmless,unlike the Komodo dragons of Indonesia

7. A native hawk (lawin) diving from the sky for young chicks. This lawin is on a cage to do no harm to your chickens for the moment

8. Coconut rats feasting on young coconuts ( one coconut almost hit me on the head). Watch out for your head, specially on a windy day

9. Blue starfish and corals seen only a few meters from my back yard

10. Bougainvillas and orchids blooming in my front yard ( see picture of orchids on previous posting)

11. A sunset that takes your breathe away ( notice the two swimmers also enjoying the sunset)

12. A papaya tree with ripe fruits ( not yet seen by the fruit bats)

13. Mangoes loaded with fruits almost touching the ground because of its weight

14. Bananas and avocado trees loaded with fruits( no picture of avocados-see in previous posting)

15. The scream of an alley cat on “Heat” at midnight ( photo taken from the web), and last, but not least

16. The crowing of the rooster at 4:00AM everyday morning before dawn, a reliable alarm clock if you want to wake up that early

I just spent a weekend in Marinduque at it was great. Will surely return there for more. I was able to pass by your place in Boac.

Hi Allan, thanks for dropping by. Hope to see you soon in Marinduque. Hopefully. next time your trip will run smoothly ( not too long just waiting), but anyway you had Ferdz and Ogie for company.

Hi Mr. Katague, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about the hacking incident. I've no time to visit yours as I was nearly leaving for Pinas. I went to Marinduque and stayed overnight there because I have my auntie who's in the convent of St. Claire Monastery. I like Marinduque because it's clean and peaceful. We would like to stay more but we needed to leave the next day as we only have 3 weeks vacation. Everything has been planned with complete itineraries.

Let us just be careful with these hackers! Have a good day Sir!
