I missed going at this beach, when my cousin live at this place.My sister and I love to go here for swimming coz its really cool specially when it turns to dark, the sea was calling your attention to run and jump on ..but if there's alot of people going there? the water turn to look dirty..hahahahaha
It was really great at that time my sis and my cousin went to the Subic Bay to meet an old chat friend of mine who's inviting me to meet each other in Pier 1. At the time we arrived there and some band are performing already and later on after we start eating and talking, one guy announced that they had a visitor. People are clapping their hands so we turn our head to the stage and watch who's walking into the stage. I was "WOW" its a black guy. And then he grabs the mic and start talking, after that he start singing. I was so shock though he was singing of the song I’ve hear it before but I don’t know who’s the singer. People are shouting, and my chat friend asked me if I know who’s on stage. But after that she said its “The Platters” one of the singer of “The Platters”. I grab the time to take a picture with him. Yeheee!
we enjoy doing early morning walks as there are less people around. you just never know what you may bump into. most stores are just starting to open up and the bakery are just starting to sell there goods. this is the best time to get the good sweets.
walking along the beach in the morning you get to watch some of the fishermen with the morning catch, and see some of the locals wandering around.
