Southern Skies

June 9, 2009

Our long overdue joyride. The fam decided to hit the road, break-in the new SUV and head down south. We've all been wanting to visit Boljoon Church once again cos our last visit was approximately 8 years ago and we kinda missed the place. There's just something about this small town that makes us want to visit more often. If only Boljoon wasn't that far, we'd surely spend most of our weekends there (WANTED: space cars! lol)
Also, my sister had wanted to make the Escuela Catolica as one of her (photography) subjects since its been featured in numerous local magazines being one of Cebu's historical structure that's been kept in perfect unaltered condition. There is also this tree-lined road featured in one of SM's massive walls that captivated us. They had said that it was a part of Alcoy town but apparently, the photographer or whoever was in-charge of the project didn't pay much attention as to where he was taking breathtaking snapshots. The road I'm talking about is a part of Oslob town which is a town away from Alcoy. Sometimes, it's better to write things down rather than rely on your memory cos more often than not, trivial details are forgotten.
Along the way, we also dropped by my mom's close friend's house at Taloot, Argao. It was sooo good to see her smile so widely when she saw us walk through her mini mart door. It's been ages since they last saw each other and when she fell ill a couple of months ago, all she ever wanted was to see my mom. It was surely a heart warming moment.
On a lighter note, lola spent the better part of the trip sleeping. haha. She surely missed out on a lot of beautiful seaside sceneries.
I've said this once and I'll say it again, southern Cebu towns has a lot more to offer when it comes to overwhelming natural seaside views than any other northern towns combined. The western part is an entirely different story.
Anyway, featured in this blog are the Argao and Boljoon churches, Escuela Catolica and the infamous tree-lined road of Oslob.
Would like to thank once again my sister for all occasions, Rose, for my pictures and my dad as well who certainly had a good time tinkering with the camera. hehe!
