Grey Manila Bay [Watery and Outdoor Wednesday]


A view of grey Manila Bay from G Hotel along Roxas Boulevard on Saturday afternoon.  We were supposed to bring a friend from Davao to a nearby park that afternoon but  rain  poured and gusty winds blew  about an hour after I took these photos.  Manila Bay is a natural harbor that serves the Port of Manila.  The bay is considered to be one of the best natural harbors in Southeast Asia and one of the finest in the world.

It looks like a gray and rainy day. We have been having very very hot, humid and dry days here so all that rain sounds good to me.

Even with nature acting up, you still got some very nice shots for today. I enjoy seeing the sights from your area.

The palms do look a little like those where we are now -- South Carolina USA.

Your picture is just lovely.

What a lovely place and it certainly does seem to get a lot of ship traffic!
