Started our second day by swimming since our tour of the south will commence after lunch.
Pagudpud's sand (Saud Beach) is not as powdery in texture as Boracay's but still the sand is fine and white. The waves that day were strong maybe because it rained earlier that morning, but it didn't stop us from swimming. None of us are good swimmers so as a safety precaution we just stayed near the shore. And aside from strong waves , there are also sudden 'drops' in the sand, so be extra careful and alert.
let the tour of the south begin...
Cape Bojeador Lighthouse
The lighthouse is believed to be the highest lighthouse in the Philippines. We went up the lighthouse. Steph, Vina and I climb up to the top but didn't stayed long ( maybe just for 1 minute, then we got down), it was scary because the wind was so strong. We were afraid we're gonna be blown away and be carried off to South China Sea. hehe!
Kapurpurawan Rock Formation
Puraw in Ilokano dialect means white; kapurpurawan when translated in Tagalog means Kaputi-putian. A bit of walking is required to view these amazing rock formations. From afar, I can see that these unbelievable rock structures are impressive . but when I saw it up-close, I was awed by its beauty. These rock formation are a stunner. I do hope the local government of Ilocos would take good care of these natural wonder.
a real stunner
We enjoyed the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation so much that we didn't notice the time. It's nearly sunset and we might not be able to see the windmills. Thankfully, we made it just in time to take pictures before it becomes completely dark. Our guide said that, the windmills faces the South China Sea from where the wind blows; it provides the much needed power requirement of Ilocos Norte.
as evidenced in the photos above, the barbecue platter was a hit! and Steph was bondat! :D
What a way of storing up energy for our Day3 tour. hehe! Laoag, Paoay and Batac tour, up next!
