the clouds was in bad mood when we traveled from Alabang to Central Luzon. we passed by San Fernando Pampanga, where the sun was up but a little cloudy. we know that typhoon Igme was entering the Philippine area of responsibility but it will just hit the Northernmost area of Luzon and was expected to be in Taiwan by the next day.after a short stop over, we traveled to Olongapo then to San Antonio Zambales where it started to rain. when we reached barangay Pundaquit, where we will take a boat ride to the island of Capones, rain came and it rained hard this time.
the weather condition gave us less chance to cross to the island. but after quite some time, the weather became better. this then allowed us to cross the sea to the island. i was with Lingkod Alabang group and our special guest and fellow travel blogero Lawstude who joined us in this island trip.the boat ride to the island was just around 20minutes. boats here are quite small compared to boats used in Batangas. so while crossing the sea, big waves caused a lot of unusual motions to the small boat. i didn't even dare to take a shot while huge waves hits our boat creating splashes.
after minutes of wave turbulence, we were now approaching the island of Capones. many climbers and hikers includes this island as a side trip after trekking Mount Anawangin which was just a boat ride away from Capones. in our case, we are to spend an overnight in the island. as we were passing by the beach front of the island, the view tends to erase the turbulent experience from the boat ride. the island with its high rising hills creates a perfect place for campers. we will explore the island in the next post. join us in this overnight stay in an island known for its beautiful natural landscape. we will use the map below as our guide around the island.
