After our Santiago Island trip, we headed back to the mainland to visit Patar rock formations and view the sunset at Cape Bolinao Lighthouse. Along the way, we were forced to stop by and capture this magnificent view. This is the usual scene on Balingasay River.
Part of Bolinao, especially the area along the shore, was believed to be submerged. This is the reason for the unusual rock formations. Another thing we noticed is that the water is still shallow even we’ve already walked (quite) far away from the beach.
We named this “The Ship’s Bow” (just for fun) because if its shape and standing on the edge feels like a popular scene on Titanic. Oh, that was me BTW.
Marine life flourishes on this area. The crevices on the rocks are not only good for the eyes but also for the sea creatures. We couldn’t help but take photos.
Patar is a great place for photographers, indeed. Breathtaking views await visitors. What’s good with this place is that Patar is not overcrowded. It is simply wonderful and we hope we keep it clean.
The sky is getting dim so we rushed to our next destination. Bolinao lighthouse, here we come!
The moment we’re all waiting for, catching the sunset on one of Bolinao’s highest spots. Cape Bolinao Lighthouse stands on top of Punta Piedra Point. Constructed in early 1900s, the lighthouse is still functioning to this day.
Finally, the sun gave us a spectacular sunset.
We took several shots but this one’s our favorite. My brother, JM, was the only one with a DSLR cam and we took turns shooting. I found his words true, “Ito ang experience na hindi nakakasawa“.
Special thanks to JM of Gabrillo Photography for sharing their photos with us.
