Right now I would be (or at least I hope so) in the island of Calaguas in Camarines Norte, having fun with friends and doing grown-up things, I suppose. No, I am not bloggin’ all the way from some remote island – this is a scheduled post.
I set this trip a few months ago thinking I would be able to bring Lia with me and not miss her a lot. I mean, not bring her with me to the island where we will be sleeping in tents, but I thought, maybe I could fly to Naga, leave Pili in the early morning of Saturday and get at the Vinzons port just in time for the arrival of the other beach bummers from Travel Factor and from then on, hook up with them to the island. The going back plan was leave Daet for Naga after lunch and be back to Pili in two to three hours. All things considered, I would only miss Lia for one night. But I had not factored in the event that I would have an actual job that has responsibilities and would not be able to fly out of the city whenever I wanted to.
Thus, the flying plan was scrapped and the bus plan came in. To be brutally truthful, I hate taking the bus. I cannot remember the last time I took a bus going to Bicol. I will not elaborate now as to why, but this much I will say, I never look forward to travelling overnight by bus. Just the thought of traveling by bus makes me think of not going..
.. but I guess (or at least I hope) I am now in the island and survived the bus trip. I am (probably) laughing and having so much fun with friends frolicking in the beach…
Only trouble is, I miss you, Lia love…
My dear little one,
I wish you are laughing here with us just like we did in Matukad Island in Caramoan.
And you are enjoying the sun on your face, the breeze blowing your hair, and the sand on your feet..
We will play in the sand and splash water all around us, and over our legs and even at our faces..
I promise to put as much sunscreen on you and all over you so that you do not get burned like you did here:
We can be castaways. You can stay naked all the time (isn’t that what you always want to be anyway?) and I will take care of you.
I miss you Lia and I wish you were here with us.
