POSTCARDS | Sour Weather at Coron

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I woke up and it’s raining. Today’s our Malcapuya tour and we almost didn’t go, we still pushed through though, bad weather and all. It’s not everyday that we’re in Coron, might as well go. The rough seas tossed us around, we got rained on at Malcapuya, we didn’t get to visit Banana and Bulog Dos islands and we got the ride from hell on our way back to town.

This is by far the roughest, meanest, wettest, most intense and most neverending-ish boatride of my life. It was freakin’ awesome in its own weird way. Kudos to our boatmen Avel and his father Toto from bringing us back alive.

  2. I understand why you elected to sail, bad weather and all; but are you going to go through the same rough sea experience again given a choice? I went through a similar, if not worse, experience and my answer is a resounding NO! LOL. Our boat almost capsized and I was nearly thrown overboard on a fishing trip in a stormy weather that we could have put off to a calmer day. Do I need to tell you I was not wearing a lifejacket and I do not know how to swim.

  3. good thing ur boat man was a risk taker!
