Hi guys, it’s been a while that I haven’t come back to WP. Miss you all! I am in Philippines now. Yesterday, I visited a beautiful island which was Bohol Island.
Bohol lies on the southeast from Cebu Island across the Cebu Strait and southwest from Leyte Island. It is separated by the Camotes Sea and Canigao Channel. Bohol is also located north of Mindanao with the Bohol Sea between them.
The first thought that came into my mind when I saw the sea of Bohol is: “OH MY GOD!” The sea of Bohol is so blue that makes doubt that the blue is not real. Bohol is often referred to as the Jewel of the Philippines.
There were many visitors from all over the world came to this fabulous island to spend their vocations. My guider told me that, if I visit Bohol earlier in May, I could have the chance to see the Dolphin Festival. What a pity!
However, it doesn’t matter now. I really have a good vacation here. I wish I can just live on this island. What a leisure life the local people have! Looking at the photos I took, you will see what a great place Bohol is.
Like I said before, my friends and I rent a boat to see dolphins. We were not lucky enough to see the dolphins. However, I still have a good time that day.
Sometimes we set so many obstacles for ourselves that we can’t find the easiest way to get what we want. To me, traveling means freedom. It is really good when I can relax myself from the inside of my mind.
The captain and guide kept apologize to us that we couldn’t see any dolphins this time. The captain explained to me that, there were big ships working in this region of sea, the dolphins were all scared away. Therefore, it may be impossible for us to see these cute animals.
Maybe because of getting up too early, our guide looked very tired on the boat. Though we settled the ideal that we would rent his boat next day, he still got up very early and waited us in front of the hotel we checked in. When the captain told us that the dolphins were gone, our guide fell asleep on the board.
I asked the captain that whether he could turn off the engines and let the boat drifting on the sea. He gladly agreed. So instead of seeing cute dolphins, I got the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful scenery of this sea.
I know my title of this post may sound weird to you. I was planning to out of sea to see the dolphin. However, I didn’t have the good luck to see these cute and smart angels in sea.
The sea in Philippines is really beautiful. Today I got up quite early. The sky was still dark when I went out. I was going to see dolphins. It was a big pity that I didn’t see any dolphins. Capitan kept saying sorry and explained to me why we couldn’t see them. In fact, I was not so disappointed. The reason is, I didn’t expect that I could see dolphins at very beginning.
We spent 1,300 Philippine pesos to rent a boat. It was not expensive at all. There were five people on the boat: the Capitan, our guide, and three guests including me. The boat was big enough for our five people.
Therefore, my dolphin day was called off. I stood on the board, feeling the gentle and cool wind and the shiny sunlight. Every thing was so beautiful! It doesn’t matter whether I saw dolphins or not. I have already enjoyed a nice day. That was enough.
