Sunday April 8, 2012. We woke up at 3:30 AM because this is the day we're going back to Manila. We left the island at 4:22 AM on my watch and we waited for our companion because the boat who picked them was delayed. We started travelling by land at quarter to 5:00 AM and the rain started pouring generously, all the roads we passed was over flowing but it does not stop us going home because it was still safe to travel however, on our road trip to the Blue Lagoon the MMDA stopped us because of falling rocks and some landslides. My heart sank and felt discourage because I thought we will get stranded on the streets and it rained heavily, all we can do was pray that the rains would stop to ease the situation. I think, after 20 minutes they let us passed, thank God. Even it was raining heavily I still enjoyed our road trip and feasted my eyes with those gorgeous karsts of the sea in the coastline and when I looked at the mighty ocean waves, clashing against the rocky coastline, I remembered the rough seas we experienced in the middle of Palaui Island, and I realized I'm still scared. We were not able to make it to the Blue Lagoon because of the weather condition but I promised to go back in the future.
Finally, the sun showed up and we're happy but the time we are in Saud Beach the rain started pouring & it seems it's following us. The weird was the sun was bright and the rain was heavy as well, lol. We were not able to take any pictures, since most of us has no water proof camera. The beach is perfect, it's everything everyone wants to be I guess, 'coz it's not crowded, not noisy and not yet polluted.With those white sand, clear blue water, gesshhh I wanted to jump and dive. :D But the weather didn't allow us.
We went to Polaris Restaurant to have our brunch (breakfast and lunch) but what happened they serve us for more than 2 hours and worse the crew named Reynante was rude. Good thing the manager and the owner was very accommodating and apologetic. The owner was the one who served us after we complained and waited for our order to arrive for almost three hours. They told us that we will pay 50% off but in the end they didn't allow us to pay because they couldn't find our receipt?I felt sorry for the owner because they have an incompetent employees.
Here, we have luck because the SUN finally smiled at us. This is one of my favorite and...... my first time in Ilocos Norte. Looking at it from afar even when we are still in Saud beach all I could exclaimed was WOW.... They look cute and rotating beautifully from afar but when you are near it's so powerful and huge.
Kapurpurawan The White Rock Formations in Ilocos Norte
Our next stop was the Kapurpurawan white rock formations in Burgos, Ilocos Norte. Watching it from afar seems there's no extra ordinary but seeing it up close at the rugged coast of Burgos, Ilocos Sur, it's astonishing. The details of the whole area was remarkable and the pristine beauty is breathtaking. Few minutes of walking passing through coastal rocks and bonsai mangroves, the sight of these natural rock formations was really alluring. And it will totally captivate you once you are finally near. Looking at it from where I stood, Truly an amiable and glorious sight to behold.
There are different majestic white lime stone formations in the area. On top of the rugged coast of Kapurpurawan are patches of the handsome view of the bonsai forests. Spectacular.
