Weekend getaway

These pictures was taken using my mobile phone's camera. An amazing sunrise i have witness in Argao, southern part of Cebu City Philippines. It was 5:30 in the morning, I was awaken by the sound of the sea water splashing calmly towards the shore line. The ocean looks so calm and the stillness of the water brings peace and comfort in me. As the sun rises it is as if telling us that no matter how dark your yesterdays, it will surely rise the following day and there will always be hope.


Just like the fisherman in this picture, patiently waiting for some sign of bountiful and sure catch. As i watched him, i felt like i don't have the right to rant for whatever hardships i am experiencing. This fisherman, his catch is never constant, its uncertain and yet he is not loosing hope that one day he can have the catch that will provide his needs more than what he is asking for a day.

I've been to this place for like 3 times already and i just love the sunrise. I have watched the sun rises in different angle, color, time and the view is just simply magnificient. So everytime i visit this place, i am always looking forward for the sunrise. Ofcourse the sound of the ocean is a plus factor. When you sleep at night and all you can hear are crickets and the splashing of the sea waves rushing to the shore.
