Landless [Watery and Outdoor Wednesday]

@ mirandablue                                                          Mactan, Cebu
"But as in landlessness alone resides the highest truth, shoreless, indefinite as God - so better is it to perish in that howling infinite, than be ingloriously dashed upon the lee, even if that were safety! For worm-like, then, oh! who would craven crawl to land!" 

             ~  Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Do people actually live here year round. I bet it's scary in a storm but it's so beautiful on a gorgeous day.

Luna Miranda said...

hi EG Wow! this is a fishermen's hut...they cook their food and eat here. it's like a rest stop.:p

storms seldom hit Cebu...weather here is usually hot and humid all year round.:p

I missed going to a place like this because this is where me and my friends used to star watch and day(night)dream. Thanks for the visit!
