A few kilometers from the shores of Pundaquit in San Antonio, Zambales lies Capones Island – white beaches, high rock cliffs, colorful crushed coral. You can reach the island by taking a boat ride from the Pundaquit shores. The waters surrounding the island is known to be rough but it is generally calm in the early morning until noontime. If you are into quiet places where you could see a wide expanse of blue waters and sunny skies, this is the place for you. It’s actually a big lump of rock formation  but the sea surrounding it is simply awesome.

It’s really more fun in the Philippines, why not try visiting us?

It’s like a small dot in a sea of blue, that’s Capones Island seen from the Pundaquit shores.

Such amazing rock formations, tempered by the elements.

 

Sea and sky!

And a wide beach….

Peaceful

The joys of living….

Life is a gift, given in trust – like a child. – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I could not remember how many times I’ve read the book, Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh but I remember the times when her words consoled me and lifted my spirits. I even blogged about her a year ago. Kindly read  She Speaks For Me.

At times,  words are enough to make you feel happy and contented but there is a different kind of happiness when you recall  places that made so much impression on you.  I was reviewing all the pictures I took for the past three or four years using my digital camera and then I saw these series of shots that made me smile, pictures of Pundaquit Beach in San Antonio, Zambales.  That was two years ago, a few months before I found out I had colon cancer.  And the only thing closest to spending another journey to the beach was last December when we went to Maxine By the Sea in Lucap, Alaminos City, Pangasinan to have lunch. The place faces the famous Hundred Islands.

I would love to share with you the  lovely gifts that I found while I was uploading these pictures – peace of mind, serenity, happiness, an awesome feeling of bliss and a profound respect for nature.


Infinity…

Nora’s Beach, Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales

I wonder how many secrets  you are harboring in your bosom,  I whispered something but you probably didn’t hear.

I love the play of light here, where ocean meets the sky.

And it gives you peace that you will never find in the city.

A closer look at the Hundred Islands….

This is my favorite shot! I watched them steering the small boat, serenely gliding through..what a life!
