Summer 2014: OLFC Outing, Calatagan, Batangas

Beat the heat! :)

Last April 26, the Our Lady of Fatima Parish Choir aka FPC had our annual summer outing in a remote, end-of-the-map, virgin beach resort in Calatagan, Batangas. This is a private resort in the wilderness. Now, don't get me wrong, this is a perfect scenery for us to bond over the company of each other for there are no wifi, no tv. Its just us choir members, good food, summer breeze and a whole lot of booze!☺☼

We arrived at the resort almost lunch time because we have to pass by the market to get some supplies. From the market near the Port of Calatagan (this port has vessels that could take you to Puerto Galera, Boracay, Mindoro) there is another 20-30 minute ride to the resort but all those time travelling is worth it! Grabe! It is one of the places we ought to be during this summer afternoon! 

The beach is still untouched by machines so it gave us a feeling of adventure as we ventured into the sea. There are deep puddles, shallow areas and areas of sharp coral reefs! My inner biologist was so KILIG!!! Hahaha! I'm super excited to dive in the deeper parts. There are free swimming fish everywhere! 

Another advantage of this resort is that it has its own BALSA and rubber boat to assist our friends. Plus this resort is complete with its own kitchen, 4 big bedrooms; 3 with AC, a veranda and a dining area overlooking the sea! And once the tide is low do not fret because there are 2 freshwater swimming pools to bathe in!

Here are some of the photos courtesy of Ms. Joy Gestiada. :) Enjoy!

See that buoy (black floater) over there, that is the landmark this case a watermark that signifies that beyond that point is the deep sea. :) beyond that is the open water.


Two days are not enough of this kind of fun but let's save some more next time! :)
