Caramoan: drive-by shootings [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
Hugging approximately 70 kilometers of mountainous coastline from Sabang to Caramoan had revealed the natural rugged beauty of this isolated area of Camarines Sur. We were expecting endless summer sunshine during the trip but got cloudy skies and rain instead. We were tired, and the unpredictable weather made us a bit anxious during the 2-hour boat ride. But the sight of green rolling hills, wild cliffs, quiet coves and sleepy villages relaxed us somehow. These are all drive-by shots---the sea was a bit choppy, and with our small outrigger boat, the ride wasn't exactly smooth. Good thing I got some not-too-blurry photos.:p

It's incredibly green where you are... on a day like that it looks almost like England!

Too bad about the gray skies and rain. I agree with one of the comments above - it reminds me of England too! Thanks for stopping by at my "sunny" WW.
