One of the places I really look forward to visiting while in Davao was the Vanishing Island sitting in between Davao City and Samal Island. Like most sandbars across the country, the island only appears during low tide.
We only have a few hours before it gets eaten by the sea again and as luck would have it, we were greeted by nothing but flat gray sky as far as the eye can see. Good news for the ladies hiding from the sun, bad news for photographers looking for the perfect beach sky. But all was not lost. I found the starfish I’ve been forever on the lookout for, a rare six-armed wonder enjoying the overcast sky by the beach.
