Bay Walk

We went for a walk the other day at the seaside near here. A Filipino co-worker suggested us that place, he said that whenever he and his wife goes there, it reminds them of Luneta in Manila. I never been to Luneta Park but I can say it must have been good if my friend compared it to this place we went to. I don't really know the name of the place but its peaceful and family friendly. Here are some of the pictures we've snapped.
Isn't it relaxing to walk around in this kind of quiet place? The building by the way is a place where you can lay a mat and have a picnic. I find it very neat!

Luneta is a nice park, I've been there a couple of times, but it gets really hot especially as it nears lunch time :(

You should visit the Philippines too! :D

fajar said...

cool place, i remember my place in java

webbieGurl said...

i have never been to luneta park too but i have walked along the bay as well.. indeed it looked like there..

Rogue said...

that is cool! indeed a great walk. i bet the difference is the cleanliness from the manila bay walk or in that roxas blvd... it was beautiful there but as usual, it does not play exempt from the unclean environement... sigh..

IMy Taex said...

I actually went in the baywalk in manila many times...well, only around thrice with my lovey... anyway, we went there just a week or two before the restaurants and bars were scraped off... it was a memorable day/night though coz it was raining cats and dogs and my office mate had difficulty finding us and we were forced to get inside a certain bar/resto coz of the rain!

ilovph2 said...

i love the images.. the surroundings seem so peaceful and friendly.

Joops said...

Hi Kwagoo, we will definitely check the Luneta park when we go there hopefully next year. Thanks for the visit!

Joops said...

Hi Fajar, thanks for dropping by man!

Joops said...

Hi webbiegurl, yeah walking along the bay is therapeutic..

Joops said...

I bet you're right Rogue, but it might be clean now hehehe.. Thanks a lot for the additional info!

chubskulit said...
