Summer Trip Part 2

My folks are spending one night and a day at our little cabin on the hills.  It’s been a while since I’ve been there so I decided to come along.  We left after office hours the last day of April.  An hour drive from home and we’re here!  No photos on the way as it was dark. So…

The next morning… May 1

From the beach to the mountains.  <Deep Breaths> AaaaAahHhhh cool breeze for a change.  Labor day in the Philippines. One day no work.   Make the most out of it.

Day break.  Good Morning sun..Good morning trees...

The Main Event…

The Everest Zipline

We got here late.  There are a lot of people lining up for the ride.

First ,fill up a form and pay here on the viewing area.  The zip liner actually passes by here.  Take pictures while you're at it.

You can’t really see where you will be landing from up here.  All the more reason to try this! Exciting!

My daughter with the grands. Savoring her mixed emotions in anticipation.  This is the first time for both of us.

Time for a swim!  A very unflattering photo.  I lost my neck due to the cold water.  Is that possible?

The Lantawon falls.  A stop over.  It's a long way down to get there.  Where I'm at I can here diverse sounds from creatures in the forest.  There is not enough time to go to it.  It's miles away from here.

I hope you enjoyed the trip as much as I did.  I will go back next time to get a better video on my zip ride.  Thanks for visiting my blog!  See yah!
