Last summer hurrah at Acuaverde

We took a quick overnight trip to Laiya, Batangas last week before school officially opens this June. It was literally a last minute trip, since we only booked our room at Acuaverde Beach Resort just the day before via their website!

We already stayed here a year ago and everything's pretty much the same. One thing that's new though is that there's a Municipal Tourism Area before you get to Laiya and you have to pay P20 per adult (kids are free).

Anyway, there had been some rain the past few days before our trip but luckily it was bright and sunny all throughout our stay. We saw on the news though that it was raining pretty hard in Manila so good thing it didn't reach us at all. :)

it was so hot no one wanted to sit on the lounge chairs ;p
playing in the shade

This is Skyler's 2nd time to go to the beach (the 1st was last April in Palm Beach). It was so hot though that he stayed in the room most of the time. We only took him out during the late afternoon and also dipped his feet in the ocean for the first time!

so kagigil!
first time to use a monopod! hehe needs more practice ;p
first dip in the ocean (the toes at least!)
spot Miley!

We woke up early the next day and headed to the beach immediately after breakfast. It really is so much better to swim in the morning since the water is a lot calmer with almost no waves. But it was so hot that the kids kept wanting to go back to the room after a while. Miley even said "Mommy, we're in a desert!" lol! ;p

fine sand and clear skies
Daddy found a crab!

Happy and thankful that we were able to spend this quality time together before summer ends. Til the next getaway! ;)

  1. I love your aqua-colored skater skirt Ms. Helene!!

  2. Hi saw you blog post :) Can you please tell me more about the beach? Is it crystal clear?

    1. The sand is fine and the water is clear. Although of course you can't compare it to Boracay that's crystal clear. But good enough for a quick getaway from Manila :)
