Bohol Adventure to Balicasag Island, Virgin Island and the rain storm that had someone all freaked out.
We were trying to find a beach to take t he kids to.
This one was perfect for Hubby and I, but the kids would like a little more.
There was NOTHING here - which could be perfect for some, but not for others.
If we lived here and we were prepared with all our 'beachy' stuff this place would be perfect.
But when we realized there was NO PLACE TO FEED them we thought they might go off the deep end, so Hubby and I soaked it up and savored this moment for ourselves.
We hoped in a tricycle & headed back to our hotel.
It was shack, after shack after shack of people trying to sell you things.
This made my heart happy.
Cocktail in hand, lounging on a chair while Hubby snorkels and the kids have crab races under a tree.
(Boy 1 was lounging on a chair beside me.)
I joined Hubby for snorkeling around the reef, it was amazing!
On the 'other side of the island' they will tell you that you need to hire a boat to swim around the reef, but we had no problem doing it on our own from the resort side. If you were to hire a boat to come to this island, ask them to drop you off at the resort side.
Then it started to pour.
Someone, I'm not mentioning any names had a freak out and was insisting we turn around and go back. We were in the middle of nowhere and could see no land around us.
We all wrapped up in towels at first.
When I was finally able to pull the camera out again this is how dark it was:
This is the only picture we took of Virgin Island, but it was beautiful. We had more crab races, just hung out and explored the entire island.....as we were the only tourist there!
The kids were happy when we arrived back at the hotel - they swam in the pool, played on their electronics and ate.
