the way there….

 

A place where hidden sceneries lays, mountain views, rice fields, banana plantation and other agricultural products.  Maragusan doesn’t fail to amaze me.  Even roads getting there won’t hinder adventurers on discovering this place.

 

 

 

Had to experience dusty means of transportation, had to deal with swaying motion during the ride.  But the sacrifice is worth taking when reaching the top.  Especially when passing by views that were perfectly landscape by nature.

 

dusty

Hoping that civilization won’t change the way things is.  But before time comes that this landscape can only be seen in books and articles, might as well experience it first hand.

This Old Church

 

This old church in Basey Samar in the middle of a crowded and peopled community lays a holy place built centuries ago.  I was amazed with the structure itself, the way it was built and the way it was situated near this body of water.  Some locals say that the bell tower of the church serves as sighting position for incoming vessel be it visitors or enemies during the war.

 

As we explore the surroundings, we noticed the damaged through years.  But the devotees preserved the place.  Even mass is on set during Sundays, but unlike other churches it only has one mass per Sunday. 

 

 

The church’s altar was eminently secured by the people.  It feels like you have traveled to the past while inside the church. 

 

 

The way up was challenging because of its ruins / damaged parts but surely secured by people managing the church by educating the visitors to its danger.

 

 

When we reach the top, it was worth the danger that we have had to get through.  The overlooking surrounding was 360 degrees.  The waters that try to hand signal us closer to her.  The wind that touches our skin with ocean breeze was even more relaxing.  Whoa…..that was amazing.

Forecasting early to come to Maragusan for a commitment, with that in mind, I woke up early and prepared some stuff for the travel.  I leave the house at around 7:45am, directly headed to the terminal for a bus ride.  I was so pleased to see that there is a bus waiting to depart.  To my surprise and a bit disappointment, we’ve waited for exactly 47 minutes before it departed the terminal that counting started the moment I arrived, I don’t know for those who arrived first.

 

As we traveled,  dust and the scorching heat of the sun welcomed every passenger on that bus.  To our big disappointment, the bus wheel rolled something that make it sounds like the air releases with force, for short, flat tire.  Most of the passengers murmured to disappointment that even I cannot comprehend.  I got nothing but disembark and see something to grace with what happened.  For I know, I am delayed and that I have no power over the situation.  I brace myself and enjoy the scenery and quietness than frown and feel uncomfortable.

Upon arriving at this bridge….I can’t help but be amaze of its beauty and magnificence.  The way it was planned, and the way it was built.  

 

Even on our way to the said structure, I was imagining its creation and edifice.  Even imagining on what will look after or how will I maximize my experience.  When we were there, the distance to walk doesn’t bother us specially me.  From the police post to the place where this photo was taken took us almost 30 minutes of walk, of-course that includes stop overs for our photos to be taken.

 

It was worth the walk…. my heart beats like a drum.  But tiredness does not overpower my overwhelming emotion.  Full of excitement, joy and happiness.

 

 

 

 

When we were about to leave the area.  I said to myself….. at-least, I’ve been here….:-)

Sometime in April of 2012, A friend visited my place with his eye-catching wrist watch.  The appreciative me quickly had a look and tried the said watch.  Until reaches a point that i borrowed it and forgot to return it on time.

I was bothered because he keeps on telling me to return the watch for it is indeed important to him.  I really had no intention of keeping this for a longer time.  But, rest assured, from this day forward, I’ll take of this watch to life…:-) don’t worry my friend, you’ll still see this the moment we cross our paths….:-) see you very soon……
