Wordless Wednesday: Jump!

It's either that wacky picture or that jump shot! :)
I'm the oldest among my cousins (not counting my married elder sister who rarely joins us during trips due to different constraints). I'm twenty-something, but look! I still look like one of the kids (can you spot me?), and I still feel like one too.

Over the summer vacation, we went to this abandoned pier. It was newly constructed yet abandoned because it was useless. There wasn't a need for it in the area. And so, what happened was that people went there to just sit around, have rounds of drinks, or take a dive.

I wanted to dive knowing that the water was deep and the wind was just perfect. However, the only problem was that, if I jumped into the water, I would have trouble coming back up.

The waves were just too strong and there weren't any stairs or something that one could hold on to when coming up...

But that didn't stop us from taking a dip into the ocean! There were stairs somewhere at the sides of dike leading to the pier so we stayed there. 

It was getting dark already and I am not a big fan of night (and no light) swimming. So we just stayed near the steps. :) It wasn't that bad..

See? We looked like we had fun!

Honestly, we did! haha ;-) We just looked so funny because our Aunt was trigger-happy taking pictures every now and then. You know that feeling when it's pitch black and the camera just flashes and it's back to black again? I felt like I had migraines. My brother and cousin felt the same thing too!

After dinner (yes, we had dinner there, with the help of an emergency lamp), we planned on walking home because we wouldn't fit inside the transport we brought. My cousin said he'd just come back for us, but for the meantime, we can walk and eventually catch him on the road. It seemed like a good idea (the lamp was with us) because my Uncle said that there was a mini waterfall nearby, we can take a swim there while waiting.

And so we did! It looked like a pool with a fountain at the side. 
The pictures taken during this time weren't good though. So here's just one clear shot. 
It was coooold..

This was only the start of my summer adventure. More to come soon! ;-)
Happy Wednesday! ;-)



  1. First Photograph(Jump) was great! I also liked the one of ocean. :) Happy Wordless Wednesday.

  2. Now I just got myself confused.. Should I call this the SEA or the OCEAN? ;-) I was thinking that because it's deep, it should be referred to as OCEAN :P

  3. @Shilpa

  6. @Rhonda@laugh-quotes
    It was cold! :) But we don't mind it because we loved the water!;-)

    @Gwama Terri
    Thank you! :D

    Thanks! It was fun, especially that after the last step, there were some rocks, and after that was about 10 ft of water, at least! :) You should try that sometime, sans the migraines! :P

    Thanks for dropping by!

  7. Hi Simonette!

    Thank you so much for dropping by my blog. Wow! That's a jump shot up there! I like how you edited your photos and how all the colors of all your shirts come out. I might post something for my summer vacation soon too. You guys looked so happy! Reminds me of the old days when Baywalk in Roxas Blvd was still safe for swimming. Madumi na sya ngayon e. Sayang.

    Will look forward for more of your summer adventures! It's good to meet you here!

    Thank you! :) This was in Surigao, and I think, as compared to Baywalk, tatagal pa bago ito magiging polluted talaga. hehe :) Sana people will take good care of what they have so that the future generations can enjoy it too. :(

    Thank you! There will be more to come! ;-)

    Really? Wow! You should come here sometime because the pictures really don't do justice! :)

    Hi! :) This is in Surigao.. Hmm, I think the question should be, WHY this is abandoned.haha Ang mga Pinoy nga naman, gagawa ng proyekto, hindi pala gagamitin! Tama ba naman yun? :) Buti na lang, naging hang-out place na siya. hehe

    ThankS! and thank you for dropping by :)

    @Sy's Prints
    Hello! I bought a new SE model but the k800i is still the best (at least for me, haha)! I've had mine since 2007 (i guess), but it has died on me already. I'm planning on having it fixed though. Probably give it to my brother. I just love the phone! :)

    It's alright about the GFC, no worries! ;-)

    @Sarah Kate
    Thanks a lot! :)
