Sunset in the Shoreline of Odiongan

I have been fascinated lately of taking pictures of the sunset whenever we go to town and went by the shore, to stop and used the internet. The connection in the shore is faster than in downtown maybe because the mobile satellite is just around the shoreline.

Sunset in the Shoreline

The shoreline is a way better than I remember, although sometimes it is quite dirty because of the dirt, woods and bamboo sticks that went ashore. Nearby the barangay hall, there are set of swings made of old wheels, it is maybe for the children in the Day Care Center but it is commonly used by students from different schools spending their break time in the shore.

The shoreline is not lonely as it looks to be because there are families taking a dip in the late afternoon, group of friends walking along the shoreline or couple dating. We usually sit in the flower box along the street where a lot of people and motorcycles passing by since there is an intersection going back to the main road.

Chocolate Hills in Bohol

Learning local history in school is part of the curriculum, knowing your country’s national hero, flowers, animals is among other things. Learning your country’s national wonders and famous attractions is a must too. There are some local places that I could only see on my history books while growing up and learning at school.

Chocolate Hills

Chocolate Hills is one of the attraction that my country is proud of,  it is geological formation in Bohol, Philippines.  It was said that there are at least 1,260 hills but there may be as many as 1,776 hills spread over an area of more than 50 square kilometres . The hills are covered in green grass and turns brown during dry season, hence the name originated.

Chocolate Hills

We’ve been to Bohol last year and the Chocolates Hill is one of the high lights of our trip. We rented  a car for one day tour, it was worth visiting and somehow wondering how the hills are formed.

There are four legends explaining the formation of Chocolate Hills one of them tells the story of two feuding giants who hurled rocks, boulders, and sand at each other. The fighting lasted for days, and exhausted the two giants. In their exhaustion, they forgot about their feud and became friends, but when they left they forgot to clean up the mess they had made during their battle, hence the Chocolate Hills.

Loboc River Cruise

Cruising in the Loboc River is one of the tourist  attraction in Bohol, we didn’t waste an opportunity to cruise. A cruise along the river starts either from the Loay Bridge (in Loay) or at the Poblacion of Loboc. The Loay Bridge is 20 kilometers (12 mi) from Tagbilaran City while the Poblacion is about 25 kilometers (16 mi) away.

There are floating restaurants where you can eat while cruising, offering Filipino cuisines and delicacies that costs P300 or more per head.
