Everything Under the Sun: Holy Week-end Get-Away

Holy Week-end Get-Away



      We didn't plan on going somewhere this Holy Week-end holiday. But because of the intense summer heat, we decided to join my brother and sister-in-law in her villa in Puerto Azul in Ternate, Cavite. We left Thursday morning and went home Friday after lunch. Although it was a very short vacation, we still enjoyed the rest and relaxation, the "kwentuhan" (telling stories), the eating, and the swimming. The photo above shows the view from the unit where we stayed at Ocean Villas.


     Wow! It was a miracle for us because there was no traffic in SLEX going to Cavite that Thursday morning. Perhaps everyone went to the North or everyone left Wednesday. Anyway, it was great favor for us.



 



    The entrance to the much un-maintained Puerto Azul.









     This is the beach at Ocean Villas. It wasn't good for swimming because it had so much sea weeds and trash in the sand, plus many jelly fish, the kind that don't sting. The beach smells fishy, as well. The view was okay, though.

 




    This Korean or Japanese seem to enjoy flying his kite, instead of swimming.









This is the beach in the country club. It is well-maintained. Although the sand looks black, it's better than the one in near the Ocean Villas. But we had to pay Php200 per head to enter and enjoy both the beach and the pool.

 

    The pool was clean and invitingly cool. When you enter, you get free usage of those open huts with tables and chairs. There's also a restaurant inside where you can buy drinks and stuff but the price of one bottled water is Php50.







     

    Hey, you can also jet-ski here but I don't know if you can rent one. Well, others just enjoy the shades those trees provide while watching the jet skiers or, simply, enjoying the sites.


     Well, that's all, folks. It was short but it was worth it taking all these pictures to share with you.

It's great to unwind with a brief yet relaxing beach weekend getaway. It makes you forget all your problems at least for a few days. We all need that. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope we can also exchange links.
