a fleeting moment of peace

Having been really busy the whole weekdays, it’s nice to have a short trip out of town during the weekend in the beautiful city of Tagaytay. It’s a favorite destination if you want some rest and relaxation.

The beauty of the lake is outstanding. The weather is cooler because Tagaytay sits on a higher altitude. The scenery is very panoramic and peaceful. The sky is bright blue and the clouds are so thick and white. The air is fresh and invigorating.

Come sit with me on the bench, relax and enjoy the fleeting moment while it lasts and let the cool soft breeze gently kiss our cheeks, throw out our worries away and just be inspired with the beauty of nature.

Hello friends, above photo is my entry for this week’s 5th RPC. Visit my entry page here at Rodposse’s blog. Thank you.


The newly constructed highway seems to be a line that divides. You would notice in the photo the coastal shanties and houses built on stilts along the bay and modern and high rise buildings at the other side on the horizon

sunday post: surroundings

These are photos of surroundings that hubby took during their vessel’s stay in Port Mellon and Squamish Port in British Columbia Canada. All the descriptions in each photo are also written by him. He is my guest blogger for today.

mohawk creek

mohawk creek

Mowhawk creek is located in Port Mellon near the Howe Sound Pulp Mill. Actually, the creek is naturally small but the mill expanded it and water that flows here is what the mill uses and that’s the reason why the valve is visible in the photo. Eventually, it became a habitat for salmon and is now a protected area. The abundance of rainfall is high thus providing the creek with lots of fresh and pure water.

chief stawamus mountain

Remember the “Cliffhanger” movie by Sylvester Stallone? Yes, it was shot entirely on this cliff/mountain which they call ” Chief Stawamus Mountain” or simply called Stawamus Chief ..a famous Indian chief.  It is listed as the second largest granite monolith in the world and is very famous for mountain climbers during summer.

wild ducks

From the main gate of Squamish, it is still a long way walk to the town and along the road is a marsh land full of different water birds like this wild Canadian duck and other water fowls.

driftwood 2

I’ve been visiting this place since the early 90’s since this place is a regular port of call of our company’s vessels.The 2 big drift woods in the photos were already here at that time til now. Further on the bent is the marina or yacht club. Squamish is just a small cozy town before but when the Winter Olympics was held here last 2010 it became a famous tourist attraction complete with malls, new shops, etc.

travel theme: foliage

Leaves form a majestic silhouette across the sky as the sun sets in. I randomly took these photos last week as i was spending my afternoon at the coffee shop. I just thought they are beautiful and relaxing as the leaves gently swayed everytime the wind blows. It was a lovely afternoon and i’m glad i captured the moment.
