Gloomy Guijalo Port [Watery and Outdoor Wednesday]




They say that into every life some rain must fall...and it did on our way to Caramoan.  After a choppy 2-hour boat ride, a rainy and overcast Guijalo Port greeted us when we finally arrived.  An unforeseen weather in the middle of summer,  it was a bit uncomfortable but it was also preparing us for the good times to come.  We accepted it as a blessing, and it didn't dampen our spirits---after all, it took us almost 18 hours to get here.  We were determined to enjoy our vacation!  Our boatman assured us there would sunshine the next morning---and true enough, a luscious dawn and a golden sunrise welcomed us  when we woke up.

A misty day has its charm as long as it doesn't stay. Nice shots.

It looks like a really nice place to come to shore, even in the rain.

Whatever you felt that day, I just want to say that "gloomy" is not a word that I can use for your photos. I love them! The place looks wonderfully misty and quite romantic. Glad that the sun decided to come out the next day though. What's a beach trip without the sun? :)

This is a favorite kind of day near water for me...the foggy surroundings the sounds...nothing better. Great pics.

My day's post is all about turtles. The release of 110+ baby turtles into the Gulf! With pictures galore. DIRECT LINK

Have a super Wednesday.

Happy Vacation! What a lovely place. I think the rain was probably worth it.

There's a certain beauty in the fog and an inviting mysterious feel, too.
It looks like an island paradise.

I guess i would nog mind the weather as long as I could vacation by the water. Anyway, its nice to have a gloomy day now and then.

Nice place.

For me, this is not gloomy at all. It has a dreamy and surreal feel which I love. It's truly beautiful.

We had a gloomy day way over here today also. But your photo's still look pretty.

Your pictures certainly show a gloomy port, but I'm glad to learn that the weather dramatically improved the next day.
