By the bay [Watery Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
A serene morning by the bay in Punta Bulata.  A couple of bancas, a type of outrigger boat,  berthed while fishermen were checking their nets in preparation for the day's  fishing expedition.

I like the feeling of isolation that comes from the absence of people. So many questions...

I miss beaches most especially on summer. Too bad we can't enjoy pools and beach here this year because of contamination(T_T)

Happy Watery Wednesday!

Your first shot tells the story of a fisherman’s boat that has been used and used. The other shot has a new one along side....both sides of a coin. The photos are lovely. Genie

Luna, I haven't been there yet I've heard it's beautiful white sand beach there. Only an hour or two I think from our City in Himamaylan.
