Join Me In Summer Paradise

Today, let me take you to my happiest Summer paradise. IMG_7257 First, let me take to your very own sanctuary with an ocean view. Go ahead, unpack, unwind, relax, toss all the worries and excess baggage behind Swim time into the crystal clear warm blue waters of Boracay IslandAmazing doesn’t begin to describe the fine powdery white sands beneath our feet. IMG_7277Here in Summer paradise, everyday a blissful sunrise awakens you, heals you, hears you. No judgment. No dramas.

IMG_7256Whether for love, solitude or soul-searching, Summer paradise has all kinds of sunsets for everyone.

Summer paradise is a place where we get to be ourselves and always feel we are home. Summer paradise is about people embracing you so tight it breaks your heart to let go and say goodbye.

    • Thanks. It’s nice to go back to places that means more than just a Summer getaway. Places that reminds you of the home and family you grew up with. Feels good to look back and be reacquainted with ones roots.

    • Thanks Patrecia. Yes, No. 1 son had the most amazing time. He blended in so easily and was so happy and excited to meet his cousins and discover so many new things. It was hot and humid with several days of rains but he never complained except one time at the airport. We all had an unforgettable time. Sending you love, joy and peace my friend. God bless you and your family.

    I would have been very jealous if this is just now. I know, it’s paradise out there and wish we could live there and enjoy them all the time. No place beats the islands.

    • Thanks Bebs. I actually was hoping to go back this Summer but my other half wants it next year on her 40th Birthday…but we do get to visit a place that feels like home too for us…California! Yipee!

  13. My goodness, what gorgeous water! We are trying to make summer plans, and were thinking Philippines, until we read about the typhoons and weather…but it seems like you hardly had any rain at all. Any advice about weather in August? Would we still be able to enjoy Summer Paradise?

    • Thanks Shelley. It was raining the first week we arrived but afterwards it was sunny. August is rainy season but there are a lot of great days with clear blue skies. It’s off season for tourists so for me, it’s better. Less crowded and hotels are cheaper too. Hope you get to see the Philippines soon.

    Hmmm… why doesn’t my “Summer Paradise” look like that in the Midwest of the U.S.! ๐Ÿ™‚ You have outdone yourself with the beautiful pictures and the memories that place you back in time as if it were happening now.

    The verse you chose, Isaiah 49:9 caught my attention. It seemed to mesh nicely with Zechariah 9:12, “Return to your fortress, O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.” Your post made me think of “prisoner of hope” as that is what memories can do for us!

    • Thanks Debbie. I read Isaiah 49:9 several days before I made the post and it stuck in my head and somehow it speaks of the new hope and rebirth that we usually feel and experience every time we’re on a vacation or some getaway. To me, vacation is God’s blessing for us to create something beautiful, meaningful, special with our family, even within ourselves…it’s a way to appreciate what we have…a time to heal and find again what makes us smile the moment we wake up each day. God bless my friend and have a great Summer.

    Viewing the ocean from the balcony, Boracay white sands, shooting the zephyr while listening to the lulling waves, zip-lining, doing the herbal warm spa, watching the sunset, kayaking, crossing the hanging bridge, swimming (pool), gaping at the waterfalls, eating estival foods…with loved ones! I am so envious now, bro. You have just elevated my definition of what summer lovin’ is.

    Doing any of those activities too keeps me in perfect fettle. Sadly, I am currently based in a place where littoral sights, sylvan surroundings, and palisades are but becoming part of a fleeting moment that is yearly vacation.

    • Thanks Bro. Soon, Summer lovin’ will be knocking at your door too. I was hoping to go back to the Philippines this year but since I can’t, I’m reliving every bit of the amazing memories and events I had last Summer. No place like the Philippines. I won’t exchange it for any place on Earth…one day, hope fate will lead me back to it. Have a great Summer my friend and best of blessings to you and your family.

    Damn! I really need to go to Boracay. I’ve been wanting to go there since forever! When’s the best time to go, you reckon?

    • Thanks. Best time for me is off season. Airfare and hotels cheaper and less crowd on top islands for vacation. Main draw back…rain which doesn’t really happen everyday. so, there’s still lot of sunny, awesome days to go sightseeing or just relax at the beach.
