Dumaguete – 12/01/07

Morning at Kookoos Nest Beach Resort. 

My Ever Reliable Water Heater

In a place like Kookoos Nest, where it is very tranquil, I need some sounds to keep me oriented. That’s where my handy battery-operated AM/FM radio comes very handy. [No pix]

The Common Toilet Door at Kookoos Nest! There’s no one around really. So who cares, if someone see my naked body! 🙂

Breakfast in my room at Kookoos Nest

Morning Snorkeling at Kookoos Nest Beach – It was here I saw a seasnake for the first time. I was snorkeling on a very shallow and stony water, when I suddenly spotted a seasnake. I thought it was just a small long fish. Upon realizing it was a seasnake, I stood up and tried to run. But it was hard to run in the waters, so I dove back down to the waters. And that’s when I hit the stones – ouch! I forgot that I am in the shallow waters, hehe. Good thing there was only one local boatman around. I think he did not saw my crazy act, haha! I tried to track the striped seasnake the second time, and I was able to see it. I was not able to get a good picture because I was scared to go near it. 🙂

The P200 Lomi – My lunch!

The Realization: Antulang Beach Resort has a fabulous sea cliff view, but I think I can get to see this without paying a high price. Antulang Beach Resort is a typical luxury resort uniquely placed in a sea cliff of Antulang Peninsula. There are other better luxury resorts in Greater Manila Area. That’s my catch!

Tambobo Bay and Antulang Peninsula Road Trip

The Way to Tambobo Town – I wanted to visit this town. Before the trip, I was imagining a paved road – but I was wrong. I didn’t pursue of going there when I saw the rough road. Maybe some other time. I think the Tambobo town is a better alternative beach place around the area. The access to a town means cheap food and lodging. The Kookoos Nest beach can be swam easily I think – that near!. But if you take a simple small boat, the cheapest fare would be P20 only!
