Ocean Shore in Donsol

 I am reposting this photos that we took when we had our vacation in the Philippines.   I busied myself taking pictures during our stay in the Philippines. I always take the kids and my late brother's kids to the ocean shore and let them play in the sand while I explore the beauty of the place taking photos with our new camera. This one is my favorite one. I call this a post card pic hehehe.
This one has an explanation to it, that no matter how big the problem that comes your way, there is always light. A light that will lead you in getting through the difficulties, and that light is GOD!
See how the dark cloud is getting separated, that means that God always guide us in taking the right path, all we need to do is to choose the right path. So it is up to us.
My wife love this formation of clouds which she visioned to look like a teapot.
During low tide, the shore look like this. My mother-in-law's house is just fifty feet away from the shore so we really had a great time exploring the place.
I just wish that there is a program for the people there to clean up the place. It could be a better place for the children to run around.
Sometimes there are people who are collecting clams and other kinds of shell for food in the rocks.
Thanks for browsing at my collection of photographs and for dropping by. God bless you folks!

hi john! love all your pictures. that is the big advantage living close to the beach, you can go there anytime we want. i love walking in the beach early in the morning and late in the afternoon.

A.Marie said...

Absolutely beautiful pictures; your MIL's house is that close to the beach?? That is awesome! I can't imagine living so close to the water. I agree with your cleanup idea; if I lived there, I would definitely want a program like that! :)

Wow John, you are not only a certified camera buff but you are also a philosophical writer giving testimonies to the greatness of God. God bless you more for that. Yes, Donsol is a very nice place. I've never been there yet but I hope someday I can go there to witness the great whale sharks (butanding). Bicol is indeed a wonderful place in the Philippines where the people are warm and the food are spicy. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
