Wonderful November 2015

I had a steady November.  I worked, I traveled. I had fun in between. There were challenges. I am always amazed how God works. In times that I feel low, blessings came along.

November 1 and 2 were the days we remember the dead but you can trust Filipinos to make light of a somber occasion. Notice the hot pink tomb in the cemetery here.

My aunt’s friend sent us rambutan. Lots of them.

I have always egged my cousin to drive me to the Bood Promontory. It is an elevated area where the first mass in Philippines was held.  We used to cross the river in that area by hiring a boat to help us cross. Now, there is a hanging bridge and that is why I wanted my cousin to bring me there.

Standing on the middle of the bridge, I took a photo of Mt. Mayapay.

Oh, I saw this  photo contest in my  Facebook newsfeed. When I clicked on the link, I found my entry of last year’s contest being featured. No, I did not win. The Tinuy-an Falls entry won. Mine is the third one. Mine was taken in Laswitan, Cortes, Surigao del Sur. It is nice that two photos featured are both taken in the Philippines and in Surigao del Sur. I just hope they put captions to identify the locations.

The larger version of my entry is this.
This was taken last year and this year, my friend invited me again to join her on this trip.  My instagram page was filled with photos of that trip.

We made a side trip to the Britannia Group of Islands in San Agustin, Surigao del Sur. As the sun set that day, I was able to take this photo.

Oh, since it is almost December, I got to clean the living room and decorate my tree.
