Holiday Memories at the Beach

Took this from our archive of vacation photos. Boracay Island in the Philippines has always been a favorite holiday get-away for many, locals and tourists alike. We had a lot of cherished memories in Boracay - our honeymoon and several holidays with friends have been spent here.

Who can get over the beauty of its clear blue waters, powder white sands, breathtaking skies (especially the summer blue skies and sunsets, wow!), the fun, bubbly feel of the place and the warmth and friendliness of the island locals. We hope to spend another spectacular vacation spree on this island when we get the chance to return to the Philippines. You would notice in this photo that it was both sunny and cloudy at the same time, it was already raining heavily on other nearby islands when we took this, soon afterwards rain poured in, but that didn't stop us from still having fun!

(Note: We used a 2MP camera phone in taking this shot).

  8. Ha! the infamous Bora, I've had lots of bora photos posted on my blog too...this is just some post-bora syndrome that we can never really forget. Nice nice shot from a camera phone.

    Is there some surfing site in Dubai? I think I heard there is, maybe you can show some photos here...only if you can.

  16. Wow! Amazing shot. I love the lighting and colors. I wonder if that storm was coming or going. What beautiful beaches the Philippines have - definitely compete with Hawaii's!
