It was love at first trip 🙂 Seeing Iba, Zambales for the first time, I decided to adopt it as “my province”.
Coming from the south, there are few things that makes me enjoy the trip to Zambales. I enjoy seeing the simple life in the province. I love passing through the road with trees lined up on the sides. I enjoy looking up and seeing the branches crisscross with the rays of the sun sparkling in the gaps of the leaves. I love seeing “kuliglig” (2-wheel tractor used by farmers in the province) and the vast, green rice paddies with the mountains as the backdrop.
Warm Sun and the Vast, Clear Blue Sky
If being a beach bum is a profession, I’ll be good at it.:-) Nothing beats the warmth of the sun and the cool sea breeze on your face. Inhaling and exhaling everything. You just chill while you stare at the vast horizon.
Swaying Coconut Leaves with the Blue, Sparkling Sea in the Background
No doubt, when you think of the beach, one of the best way to imagine it is to see the shining leaves of the coconut tree swaying to the sea breeze, with the blue sky and the sparkling sea as background. You’ll probably imagine yourself sleeping on a hammock under the tree. Yes? Indeed the best things in life are free!
I don’t know about you but I feel still and tranquil watching the sun at it disappears on the horizon. Watching the sunset is like paying a huge respect to the passing of the day. For me, it means there’s a time for everything and that everything passes. It inspires me to live the best way I can.
Bonfire and Stargazing
It never fails to amaze me to gaze at the stars not to mention if you’re doing it by the beach. It is so relaxing. The sea breeze is so cool and you can hear the waves as it hit the shore. My friends and I enjoy sitting by the bonfire and setting hotdogs and marshmallows on fire. We would laugh on stories and jokes. It’s fun and a good nightcap actually.
Morning Walks by the Sea
I believe that walking by the beach every morning greatly improves a person’s health. You wake up early and hit the beach at daybreak. Stretch your body, take a stroll, jog, run and just breath. Walk along the shore barefoot if you like. It’s cool at first but as the sun rises, it will eventually get warm, just fine before you take your breakfast and before you set off to enjoy the day at the beach.
Life is good indeed, make the most out of it! – K
