was windy and cold yet again. I take back what I said earlier – this is not the best time to go to Boracay if you want peace and quiet. The very best time would probably be sometime January or February because then, there are no people (ultra-low season) and the sea is calm (no storms in the area).
Because it was raining, none of us got out of bed until late, around 7:00am already, and Ed and I even took the small ones out to breakfast while J and F slept on. We eventually met up with R, K, A, N, C and my mom at Gerry’s Grill in time for lunch.
I don’t know about you but I think I gained more weight in the last 3 days than at any other time in my life. All our meals have been “Eat-Til-Ur-Full” and everything has been so good, that it’s difficult to say No.
After lunch, it was raining again, but the young ones wanted to walk off their lunch, so they went, leaving us and the older ones to take a tricycle back to the resort. Once there, we changed into swimming clothes and headed for the beach. The afternoon was spent battling the waves (Ed and me, with the small ones) and kite boarding (J with the young ones). Come dinner time, we had it at Dos Mestizos, an authentic Spanish restaurant whose owner was a friend of K’s former officemate. The only downside was that the price was a wee bit too high.
Then we all said our goodbyes because Ed and I were scheduled to depart for Iloilo the next day. J’s girls, F and Kt, were sleeping at Two Seasons so J just picked up Kb (who had fallen asleep in his chair again for the 3rd night in a row) and brought him to our room. But for me, it was still too early to call it a night, so we took a walk.. And discovered this live fire dance show right on the beach:
It was Friday, after all!
