Paradise at Nagsasa Cove, Zambales


Twilight at Nagsasa Cove, Zambales
Arriving at Nagsasa Cove at around 5pm, we then took our super late lunch and our tent/hammock experts started to put them up after eating.

I noticed the sun is already setting, so I hurriedly started taking some snapshots of the glowing sunset by the bay and the twilight thereafter.

We then decided to cook (late, again) for dinner and began to prepare.  We were greatfully successful to make fire and grill the shortly marinated pork but failed to grill the fish for it was spoiled when we reached the island. Earlier, we have been singing happy birthday to Ivan and our neighboring friends nearby must have heard it for we were given some dishes too as their way of greeting. Lucky us! We couldn't resist the food that is already prepared and given, so we began eating even before our rice got cooked. Haha And of course, we presented our candlelight slice of cake (cake + lighter as candle) surprise to our birthday celebrant. Later, we began to relax and talked ALOT which started from horror stories until we couldn't take the goosebumps and shifted to other topics.  The chitchat moments continued when we decided to star gaze.  Remembering our star gazing moments makes me wanna include this line from an OPM song, "Naaalala ko ang mga gabing nakahiga sa ilalim ng kalawakan." We went to sleep after that, while others struggled because of sudden change in body clocks (night shift work and such) and the super cold breeze of the beach!

I woke up late enough not to catch the sunrise, so I immediately grabbed my camera and captured what is avaialable. I decided to climb the rocky side of the cove so as to get great angles and views. I somehow was afraid for my camera because when I started to climb, I realized that it was actually very steep and my camera keeps on bumping with the rocks.  Even with some bumps along the way, I just regretted a little since the view is very breathtaking and somehow, the elevated area is super relaxing. Somehow, the buwis camera/buhay shots are worth it.:)

We were, again, lucky because our friends there also gave another set of dishes and, happily, we took our 'heavy' breakfast. We explored the other side of Nagsasa with my friends who are already there and took timer shots of ourselves 9 times!  And finally, gave in to the beach that was long waiting for us.
