Calamianes: Covered [Photo-Hunt]

@ mirandablue
These are photos from my recent trip to the Calamian group of islands in northern Palawan.  In one of the white beaches of Coron Island, I spotted these Tagbabua lovebirds perched on the rocks.  The island is part of the Tagbanuas ancestral domain, and they make sure places here frequented by tourists are preserved and maintained.  They got the beach covered.

I walked the white sandy shores of Atwayan beach, and at the end of the cove, partially covered by  rocks, I noticed this woman washing clothes.  I wondered how she could wash clothes with saltwater.  I walked over and we chatted.  She's also a Tagbanua and she pointed to me the fresh water gushing between the rocks. 

@ mirandablue
This is Coron Island cove, the gateway to Kayangan Lake.  From Coron Bay, the cove is covered by limestone and granite rock formations, you wouldn't know it is there.
