My colleagues and I bought and packed the stuff we needed for the team outing. It was around 6:30PM when we left Ortigas and started our journey to Nagsasa Cove.
We reached Pundaquit a few minutes to midnight. It was quite windy and the waves were about 1-2 feet high but the sky was mostly clear, with a few clouds and a lot of stars. The planktons were abundant and they were also glowing whenever our boat hit them. Thank goodness, we didn’t encounter any troubles during our sea voyage.
It was past 1AM when we reached Nagsasa Cove. The waves were much calmer compared to Pundaquit’s. There was no electricity so the guys relied on torches while assembling the tents. All of us were tired so we immediately crashed the couch shortly after.
Hoping for a nice sunrise shot was futile since the sun is always rising behind Nagsasa’s mountains. I just roamed around to look for other fascinating things to ease the frustration. LoL!
Nagsasa owns different types of terrain.
The calm sea is crystal-clear so we were able to take snapshots underwater. The abundance of jellyfish was quite a turn-off though. I got stung by one and my arm remained bloated for a few hours.
A lake situates just a few meters away from the sea. It was surrounded by sand, pebbles and a lot of pine trees. The water was quite murky so I didn’t bother diving in.
Behind the shoreline lie mountains, sandbars, grasslands and multitudes of humongous rocks. I felt like I entered a Monster Hunter map because the similarities were uncanny! I thought Kut-Ku would suddenly descend from the sky! LoL!
Our trip to the waterfalls became the most excruciating moment of my life! It was a cumulative three-and-a-half hours of crossing all possible types of terrain! I tolerated the grasslands but the never-ending piles of rocks were too much for me. I was grateful because my colleagues assisted me in getting through this challenge.
