Filipinos are so lucky to have easy access to beaches! To enjoy the treasures of the tropics is just a road trip away. During holy week, my family goes to Montemar in Bagac, Bataan to have some summer fun. Since I haven’t gone with them for the past four years, I dropped everything and made sure that I joined the trip this year. And I’m glad I did.
This year’s vacation was extra special because it’s Julia’s first beach experience! Our baby easter bunny loves the water and the rough sand, but she obviously doesn’t like the heat of the scorching sun. Who does, anyway? We had a hard time making Julia smile for the camera when it was time for their family photo shoot after breakfast because it was intolerably hot for her. We had to do it later in the afternoon, just before sunset.
Aside from the holy week being a family bonding occasion, it was an opportunity for me to take some time off work, relax and enjoy life. It was priceless. I’ve realized the importance of vacation most especially now that I’m working. Everybody needs a time off from stress every once in a while. I’m happy I just had mine.
Before I end this post, I’d like to say that I’m now a fan of Backyardigans and I sometimes find myself singing “The Castaway Song” in my head! It’s more than an L.S.S.! Hahahaha!
