What Is It About Sunsets?

01 November 2009

Family Adventure 2009 Part 2--- Nasugbu Batangas!
First of all, what is it about sunsets?
We have been blessed with beautiful sunsets every now and then. The sun setting is our only chance to be able to appreciate how close we could ever see the big star with the naked eye.
Our trip this year made a big effect to our bodies and minds.

My shoutout: Rejuvenated!

My first jump shot ever. It was perfect to just let go, even there was no reason what to let go of. Being carefree, selfless and at peace with nature... unexplainable.

As we were nearing night fall, instead of checking-in a hotel in Tagaytay, we thought that the beach would be nicer. Anyway, Lian and Nasugbu is just less than an hour away.

We chose Matabungkay as our next destination. Another road trip started. We went to Lian Batangas first to check on beaches that will fit our budget. Matangbungkay was swimming with trash from the recent typhoons. It was really sad to see the beach that way. And to add, the process of cleaning, nah-ah--- bad. They were piling up the trash then they burn it. Talk about taking care of our planet, saving it from further destruction.

The highlight of our family adventure ended in Nasugbu Batangas. Trash and trunks of trees and branches were also seen in the shores of Nasugbu, but not as bad as Matabungkays. Most parts of the beach was already clean.
Anyway, we had a good time. We were able to rent an air-conditioned room for 1000 bucks, bought liempo, bbq and pork binagoongan near the town proper.

The beach is just 5 mins. away from the town proper. How good is that! They have Jollibee if you wanna go fast food. Another fun activity we had was horse back-riding by the beach. We are very happy that Franky enjoyed his first horse ride.

Nothing beats a horse ride by the ocean. Cool wind, sun rising, great view!

Horse ride @ 50 bucks for each horse. We wanted to go on a boat ride too. But we thought of maximizing our vacation at Enchanted Kingdom, so we left before lunch.

This is great mommy! Great bonding with family and nature! Ang ganda ng capture ng paglubog na araw at ng iyong pagtalon.

Naalala ko din ung White Castle commercial dati, ung babaing nakasakay sa kabayo sa tabing dagat :)

Hi Enchie. Lam mo parang gusto kong humingi ng sunset pictures niyo. Para siyang postcard at puno siya ng emotion. I don't know iba ang dating ng sunrise at sunset sa akin.

What a beautiful sunset! Wow! To think that Nasugbu is just 30 min away from my inlaw's house...Definitely have to convince hubby to go there if we find time to visit his parents. :)
