Panglao Island – Tropical Paradise

I’m still in the Bay Area, and it’s gloomy days like today that make me reflect back and think of the good times chilling out by the beach. No, I’m not really complaining much at all — The weather out here has been just fine and dandy, but today just so happens to be extra cloudy…

Anyway, I did realize that I never got around to uploading some recent pics when I was out in the Philippines, so here you go!

From Wikipedia.

Panglao Island — An island in the north Bohol Sea, located in the Central Visayas region of the Visayas island group, in the south-central Philippines.

Panglao Island, or as I like to call it — My own version of tropical paradise.

The house where we stayed.

Trail leading to the main road.

Heading to Alona Beach on a nice day. The rain comes and goes…

Weather was looking quite good when we got there.

Amazingly CLEAR waters… This is the “turquoise” color I was referring to in a previous post. Or maybe it’s teal? Sorry, I don’t know my colors… I just know Alona Beach looks more green than blue when the sun hits it!

Heann Resort right smack on the beach… Yeah, too rich for my blood.

Playing in the warm waters in February… That’s my type of lifestyle!

The far end of the beach.

“I dig my toes into the sand…”

I wish you were here.

A very affordable option to getting around town…

But I opted to walk, instead, cuz you just never now what you might stumble upon…

Gotta ALWAYS remember what we’re fighting for! Early FI — No rhyme, no reason… Just do you…

To good health!

The following two photos were taken in Cebu, but since we’re on the topic of health… Not always easy when you’re on the road, but just doing what I can to eat somewhat more “healthy”.

Toniq drink shop hit the spot. I’m a big fan (I ordered the “Slimmer Trimmer” watermelon concoction)!

Fresh fruits… About ~$4.50 USD or so for a large drink… Not too bad!

Good times…

Well, it should only be a matter of time before the weather in the Bay Area turns again and we’re back to CLEAR skies and sunshine.

Still, I’m starting to miss the Philippines…

And traveling…


Soon enough, we’ll be back on the road again!


Fight On!

Nice write up. I was in Bali, Indonesia not long ago and seeing these photos reminded me of being there. Thanks for sharing.
