Siargao Islands, Surigao del Norte, Philippines – Photo Tour, Tourism 02

The curly 9 Pacific waves are strong bringing its strength to the beaches of Siargao island wherein a lot of people are interested to ride those muscular waves. So, with a little hesitation, I flew to this island to witness the wave game. But I found myself wondering why no one was doing the action packed sport fun, Surfing. Only later I knew the reason why. That was not the ideal time to visit, and experience  the sport. A storm was brewing during that time. Waves that continuously splash the beaches of General Luna were not good enough to ride on. Perfect waves emerge and show up in the middle weeks of August up to the last week of October.  But that was not a sorry thing. I had more time touring the island.

During that time, taking pictures at the Boardwalk observation deck was difficult due to strong winds and rains. I almost got swept by the gusty air at the third floor of the deck.

An afternoon stroll at the sprawling Dahilayan Forest Park, I passed by this lantern-like flower that sways with the mountain breeze. I was amazed by its being light and when I broke one, it has some seeds that’s easily blown out of its pod and go with the wind.
