The other day, on a whim, I strolled from the "opis" all the way to Digisit, where the road up to PAGASA starts. It was the first time I went there since the December typhoons. Most of the houses, concrete and wooden, on the seaside were wrecked and the reefed beach is now back to it's pristine condition. At least until a few more months since the land "owners" are already reconstructing their resorts. Here are some of the pictures i took. The trip was a sure cure for "bonog".
Digisit Beach. That trimmed mountain point there is natural. No illegal loggers caused it. It's always been that way. Old folks call it "Pokpok na Bundok". (I earlier posted that it is called "Bundok na Kalbo". Thanks to Poppo Olag for the correction.)
This one is a wallpaper. Just click on the image to open the big one.
Anyaw. That big island was already "inangka" by some foreigner and he's building a house on top of it. I don't know if it was destroyed by the typhoon. I hope it was. Reminds me of Lizardo from Ang Panday.
The Digisit Falls (Poppo Olag again emailed a correction, this falls is actually called Natulo Falls and the area is called Natulo), where we used to get our sweet, cold and fresh water before the advent of "free-flowing" and the purified drinking water. The pipes are still there. There's a yellow "pro-environment" message grafittied (?) on a big rock in front of the waterfalls. It's ugly and should be removed. I will post the picture next time to prove my point.
The road less travelled.
Nothing beats chikka by the beach.
A boardwalk is being built from the seaside near lukso-lukso to the dapang bato, the platform to the best surf in Aurora - so far. Olin's dream come true.
