the philippines // day 3


^our abode.



^dog whisperer. 3 seconds later i almost had a heart attack when they ran at me full speed. tanner said i looked terrified but one time in costa rica, i was on the beach watching tanner surf and a mutt attacked me and freaked me out. it was honestly just wanting to play but it was aggressive and bit me and ripped my towel. stray dogs break my heart, but scare me to death now. 


^a little taste of heaven. fresh mango shake. 


^the best thing about island life is the slow pace. i think we spent 2 hours at breakfast this day. we just sat and looked out at the ocean. i saw a few turtles poking their heads out of the water but it became a joke because no one else would see them. i would see one and hurry to tell everyone to look but they would slip back under the water before anyone else saw. we sipped fresh fruit shakes and ate leftover pork sautéed in peppers and just enjoyed conversation with one another.

 ^our crew. (left to right) tanner, me, klea, jim, rambo, nenyow, jim, kristen


^it ended up raining all afternoon but it was quite romantic. this whole trip was romantic. i don't like using that word but i've never been in such 'la la land.' while it was raining, the couples from our group went out in to the ocean because it was still warm. we looked around and started laughing because every couple on the beach was in the water being all romantic. in between swimming, we vegged and hung out. we had an awesome crab feast for lunch. it was so good and so messy. it stopped raining and cleared up enough to bless us with an incredible sunset. i wish pictures did it justice but it just doesn't. that night we took a boat over to a french couples house who invited us all over for a bbq. we had met them the day before and next thing we knew, they were hosting us with one of the best meals i've ever had. their set up was rad. they had the place lit up with tiki torches and brought us up to their balcony to watch the final minutes of the sunset. the french guy was a dj and had good beats playing. the mood was perfect. we spent a few hours there then had a boat take us back to our cottage. tanner and i took a dip in the ocean before bed... heh heh. it was a great day.
