Subic Bay sunset - Sky-watch Friday





It was raining the whole Sunday afternoon when we were in Subic.  We holed up in our hotel room, watched old Tagalog movies at Cinema One, downloaded music (yes, the hotel has free wi-fi), ate junk food and just vegetated.  Sally, Gladys, Zhallyn and myself were all in heaven!:P 

It was too late to do the Zoobic Safari or jungle trek so we just drove around SBF (Subic Bay Freeport) and enjoyed the scenery, then hit the Nike factory outlet, liquor and duty-free shops.  Driving along the Port of Subic, I noticed this  gleaming sunset across the bay.  It was  cloudy but the sun peeked at us through the clouds.
 Subic Bay, and the port areas have experienced many events in Philippine history.  This maybe contributed to the fact that the Subic Bay Port area and the general areas of the Subic Bay Freeport was once a US Naval Base and Spanish Naval base.  Subic Bay port areas took part in the Spanish-American war, World War I and II and the Vietnam war until Subic Bay was handed back to the Philippines, and the port was developed into what it is today.
