Toto and I immediately dived into the waters because we wanted to be the first to see what's hidden behind the islets and take pictures of whatever it is in its most natural state, i.e. no heads bobbing out of the water; no extra water ripples from clumsy swimmers because the sky was already providing that with a small amount of rain - thanks very much; no orange life vests to destroy the color balance and all that shizz. But alas, we couldn't have the place all to ourselves for too long. But we didn't want to be selfish anyway because this beauty is meant to be shared! And besides, people add some character to photos ;)
Anyhoo, at least we got to use our rented snorkeling gears (which, by the way, is a complete ripoff at Php150/day) for some underwater shots. Methinks that Toto's facial expression in below picture is far more interesting than what's underneath the waters of this site. Close to zero corals in the area, a lonely school of tiny fish, and...that's about it!
Ah, there really is beauty in doing nothing ;)
