According to Wikipedia, Taal volcano is a large caldera filled by Taal Lake in the Philippines. Located in the province of Batangas, the volcano is second of the most active volcanoes in the country, with 38 recorded historical eruptions, all concentrated on Volcano Island, near the middle of Taal Lake.

Nissa sent me these photos yesterday. They celebrated Father’s Day in Tagaytay where the volano is located.

Beautiful, isn’t it🥰

Reposting these photos of Taal Lake and that inactive crater in one of  our trips in Batangas a few years ago.


Beautiful, isn’t it? It’s actually one of the scenic spots in the country.  We had an office excursion several years ago in one of the towns facing Taal. There were so many who were surfing, sailing and wakeboarding.

We covered our car last night since it was newly washed a few hours before the Taal volcano eruption.

Early this morning, I went out to check my garden.  The garden set is full of ash. I have to water the plants pronto. I had to wear face mask when I went out of our garage to sweep the front of the house. My golly, even the street is thick with ash. I have to sweep the sidewalk  so it won’t enter the house when the  wind blows. The ash even if we don’t see it fall is detrimental to our health especially to those people with asthma.  Our windows are all closed

Look at these photos. They were taken in one of the towns affected by the eruption.

Taal  volcano is considered the world’s smallest active volcano and is situated in the middle of  a lake.  Tagaytay  City in Cavite is the best place where you could see the superb view of Taal volcano.  About 55 kilometers south of Metro Manila, you can reach it by car in a little less than two hours.

Just took a few quick shots of the place three weeks ago while we were on our way to Nasugbu, Batangas.   It is a major tourist attraction.  But one sure way to see it closer is through the town of Talisay,   Batangas.

One could relax and  be at peace  just by looking at the view and the cool breeze of Tagaytay is  a welcome change from the heat of  Metro Manila.
