the caramoan picture storybook

a scene from the window seat, going to camarines sur

the inland waterway going out to sea is teeming with lush vegetation, mostly nipa and bakawan

caramoan town proper at 6:30 in the morning. this is already the busiest part of town; so "busy" that most people here know each other by name

this was the modified tricycle we rode during the two days worth of sight-seeing

an interesting old house we found by the roadside, on our way to the "stairs"


the stairs - 537 heart-thumping steps all in all, led us to

this breath taking view


one of the clearest waters i ever saw. clearer than that of boracay's; little fishes kept playing by my feet the entire time we were on this island


our tour's last stop - this island held many fun corners that i discovered one by one with my camera


like this one, straight out of a tourist's brochure


and this magical spot: the sunlight falling on the water's surface is glorious


before leaving the caramoan port on our last day, we were treated to an unexpected and very welcome "extra" - a peek at the mayon volcano; majestic from a distance

thanks xtian1978ii! masaya talaga. i love the unexplored feel of the place, very much unlike hundred islands na commercial na commercial na ang dating. :) nakakapagod pero enjoy!
