Our Summer Getaway

      Summer just isn't complete without a trip to the beach. We live in a tropical country and not soaking up the sun and enjoying the warm water even for a weekend just isn't right! haha! :D
     This year my family and I decided to head over to Pico De Loro at Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu, Batangas. With the recently opened Cavitex Highway, it was closer than ever. If you're from the South area (Alabang, Parañaque, Las Piñas), you can get there in an hour and a half to 2 hours (depending on how fast you drive). At least you won't have to go through Tagaytay anymore where all the traffic seems to converge especially on weekends and holidays.

This is the beach at Pico De Loro Cove

Our friends joined us on this trip and we all had a blast, esp the kids!

It was a very hot day at the beach but we were ready!

Natalie had fun swimming (or floating)! :D

Our friends left a day ahead of us but we made the most of our time together.
We went to the Astro Photography Event on our first night and Audrey got to
see the moon up close on a telescope (really close!), plus we saw the stars
in the sky projected to the big screen they set up and it was just awesome! :)

The girls loved swimming in the big pool because it had a shallow area with
beach lounge chairs submerged in the water

This was the kiddie pool and adjacent to it was the slide
(recommended for bigger kids hehe!)

Just chillin'!

Dad and the girls!

Heading to the beach again!

Time to make sandcastles again!

The day always ends at the big pool :)

The look-a-likes! :)

I love Natalie's grin! :D

Ready with our shades before heading out again

Lunch at Pico Restaurant before heading home!
Love the pasta and burger here :9

Checked out the St. Therese Chapel right before leaving the Pico De Loro premises

Check out the magnificent view! :)
