Life’s a Beach! – Nagsasa Cove Weekend Getaway

Our last stop for this trip Nagsasa Cove, where we would be spending the night.  It was a good thing that we decided to stay here instead of in Anawangin as the latter was more crowded.  We got to Nagsasa just before sunset and it turned out to be a blessing because we got to set up our tents near the water.

The first thing we did was to settle down and wash the cookwares.

While Raisa, Cecil, and Angge started preparing our dinner, Ros and I took a dip. The water was too calm and the scenery was too beautiful to pass up the chance to.

I was helping Ros cook (yes, you read it right!) while the sun was setting so I asked my friend Raisa to take a couple of shots.

Angge, Raisa, and Cecil also made an ice pit. When I asked Angge whose idea it was, she said, “Mine.” I said, “Astig, ah!” To which she replied, “Creative eh.” Fine. :P

It was a pleasant surprise for us that we had come up with a decent meal (sorry, no picture though), considering that it was our first time to do beach camping. Ros, Raisa, and Cecil did a good job preparing the food and teaching us how to do it properly, their style. And, it was fun, too! Grateful as we all are, we said a prayer, the first time we ever did, as a group.

Then, we started preparing to sleep. Angge had this wonderful idea of not sleeping inside the tent and just set up a mat underneath the starry skies. When I experienced lying on the sand, I just knew that I had to do it. I totally enjoyed watching the stars while listening to the water. It was refreshing.

Ros and I woke up early in the morning to prepare breakfast. As I don’t cook in real life, I took my cue from her. She was very patient with me, demonstrating how to prepare sinangag. :D

And, because we’re cool like that, we also had s’mores!

And, bummed in the beach while listening to some great music. Like a boss. :)

We left at past noon, just after we refreshed for a bit. And, I mean just a bit. There was not enough water for us to take a shower and to brush our teeth.

Don’t be too icky about it, though. We paid about a hundred bucks each when we got to the town proper to take a shower. Twice. And, to brush our teeth. :)

It was a very fun and liberating experience for me. And, I’m thankful that I got to experience it with these wonderful, fun, and generous guys. Like my first hiking experience, my first beach camping experience would not have been as awesome as it had been if I was not with the perfect group. :)
