Its summer time of 2013 already and everybody needs a dose of the beach life. We went to Bohol for our Lola Azon’s wake and burial and because we don’t have a house to stay in, some of our relatives checks into the nearest beach resorts in Calape.

We went there for a look and of course we can’t help ourselves from not dipping into the pristine white beach infront of us.

The kids sure love the beach because we don’t have beaches in Bukidnon. They play in the sand and water and they even tried to row the boat without anybody’s help.
