An afternoon in Tambuli

@ mirandablue
I was in Cebu last week for a bit of work and some RnR.  We finished work early one afternoon so I joined my friends who were staying at Tambuli Beach Club in Mactan. The kids were having a wonderful time jet-skiing with their dad, mom was the designated photographer between our girl talk and snacking on pancit (noodles) and club sandwich.

A variety of boats entertained us as they pass our line of  vision.  Being an archipelago of 7,100 plus islands, different kinds of sea vessels are the usual mode of transportation around the Philippines especially when travelling on short distances (less than 4 hours).  Larger ships and Ro-Ro's (Roll-on-Roll-off) provide ample cargo space for personal vehicles on board---it's a convenient way to travel from one province to the next.  Outrigger boats bring passengers to the nearby islands, and bancas are usually used by local fishermen.

Oh my that water activity is what I long for now. Today, we had snow thankfully it rained after the snow and it's gone. Happy Tuesday!

Great shots, Luna.
You are lucky to be able to combine work and pleasure in Cebu. I suddenly miss the beaches back home and I miss the boats and Ro-Ros, too. It's been a long while.

Beautiful seascape with different form of sea vessels.

The dish on the right side looks Japanese "yakisoba", or fried Chinese noodles with Japanese twist.

hello miranda :)

what's great about long holidays is that in case where you do not have any travels, you can check back on some of the blogs you have missed because of work and all. have a pleasant break my friend.
