Caramoan: Candy-colored boats [Watery/Outdoor Wednesday]


These candy-colored outrigger boats bedecked Paniman Bay at Tabgon where we stayed during the Lenten holiday. One of Caramoan peninsula's cruising grounds, this bay is sheltered with mangrove forests, mountains, islets and warm, turquoise water. These excursion boats ply across and around the peninsula, bringing tourists to pristine islands with enchanting lakes, caves, rocks and majestic mountain ranges; and also serve as regular ferries to Guijalo port providing connections to the outside world.

On placid waters
outriggers’ sinuous moves—
like reptiles dancing!
