Trapped by the Waves

The downside to living in an island is the effect of unpredictable weather. Once in, it's unsure how one could get out when nature suddenly throws a tantrum.

During the December breaks, it has become normal for us islanders to be wary of the sea. If it displays its mighty waves at the time one is scheduled to leave, there's nothing else he can do but to wait until it settles to navigable levels.

A few days ago, I almost missed most of my new year appointments when no boat was able to cross the sea for two days. As I show you the pics below, you'll surely understand why.

carlotta: pakikipagsapalaran lagi pag nag naglayag dun sa ganitong panahon. pero sanayan lang din. di nga pala pwede mag surfing dun. bato kasi sa ilalim kaya delikado. :-)

reminds me of our trip to Zambales last summer. Dun lang ako nakakita ng gayang kalalaking alon. We ended up leaving the place kasi delikado na raw.
