Back in 1989, I took this photo at this part of the beach which share the same coastline in my hometown. I have not returned to this place but it was so beautiful that I have not forgotten it. The pine trees standing tall as if sentinels looking out for pirates out on the open seawater. I am glad I took photos of the place and was able to have these developed.
One of the highlights of our 2016 summer vacation was when we went to this river. The children and their cousins swam in the big pool-like holes. They stayed in the silver tent for some snacks. My cousin and I stayed in a little pocket pool. These pocket pools were made by the big machineries quarrying the rocks. It was too hot to stay longer so we went back to have lunch at home. These simple bonding moments with family are the things we look forward to whenever we go back home to visit.
Thinking of long gone summer days in the midst of a typhoon.
