Entry 073


The Maragondon and Ternate Shores

Here are some images that I couldn’t resist to capture. One holiday afternoon, I followed a whim of going out somewhere rural and rid myself of the intoxicating and monotonous urban life. Luckily a friend agreed to drive me around southern Cavite–no itinerary, no plans–just following where the wind, well not literally, blows us.

We drove on a continuous roll of highways passing through Naic, Maragondon, Magallanes, Alfonso, Indang, and Ternate. We’ve seen the progression from mountain ridges and valleys to small populated towns. People here walk on foot to bring merchant items (like bamboo poles) and do everyday errands. To them, life was simple and peaceful, characteristics that city dwellers are bereft of. I loved the abundance of canopy and lush vegetation. Enough of the descriptions. Here are the photos.

    • I’ve been hearing stories that a big company purchased the cove. But luckily there is no developed resort yet. we should enjoy nature in its pristine and raw condition.

I'd love to read your thoughts, too. Please leave a reply. ^^
