Trippers Journey to Anawangin Cove

by lakwatserong tatay

We arrived early at San Antonio, Zambaes, around 3am in the morning. After few minutes our boatman/guide arrived, Kuya Joven, and then the start of journey to Pundaquit starts, It was still dark in the Punadaquit Bay when we arrived, so Kuya Joven give us a place to stay for a while, and wait the sun to rise. It was around 5am, when few of us go to Public Market, and before yours truly proceed to the market i went first to it's Parish Church of Holy Infant of San Antonio, one of my previous post. After my visit and praying for some guidance for our trip and stay that day, i followed my fellow tripper to the market and after buying all our necessary stuffs, for our dishes, rice, some noodles & canned goods and of course some liquiors...hehehe..We've been to public market for an hour and the sun was really shining when we got back to Brgy. Pundaquit. Of course, after getting back the trippers that does not joined us to buy our stuffs, are responsible in packing up our stuffs to our respective boats, and for me, i just hold my camera and photo sessions started.....^_^.
Our Sidetrip: Capones & Camara Island
It was 6:30am, when the trippers completed to packed up our things and stuffs to our respective boats. Here are some of the shots along Pundaquit shores.

Another cove that we passed by....
This rock cliffs, reminds me of my trip in Palawan. Although this rocks is not as might as in El Nido. It was also a picturesque shot. Also on this exact site is the entrance of the Anawangin cove.
Specially this two rock formations, that looks like the gate to enter the Anawangin Cove.

Just few meters away, It's nice to be back in Anawangin.^_^. Among all of us trippers, there were all virgins on this cove, sad to say, i just wanted to say that this cove is much nicer and you will feel that your really close to nature wayback years ago, not like this time, this coves are now called resorts, that has different owners....

We arrived few minutes ahead to our fellow trippers. Of course, i will not missed to have a self portrait photo souvenir in the shores of Anawangin. Wow, this is my 3rd time to visit this cove, and i've seen the changes of this cove. At first this cove can be only reach thru hiking via Mt. Pundaquit and now open to all tourist and backpackers that you could have 2 choices by hiking and leisure trip like what i suggested to my fellow trippers...a boat ride...^_^.
