Birthdays with the Whalesharks Part 2

After we ate, we headed for the water and looked for the butanding. The people from our place did not go with us on the boat because they already seen the butandings but some of our guests from Legazpi went with us. Our initial intention was for John to be the only one to swim with the Butanding but he encouraged others to follow. Too bad we didn't have a waterproof camera or you could have seen what we seen in the water that day. The surface shots of the Butanding when it approached the boat do not do justice to the size of this immense creature. Seeing it underwater is a completely different experience.
A pose with haide after we swam with the butanding.
A perfect smile from my angel and knight..
Here's the Butanding near our boat. It's just the tail, its actually very long and big..
This is Rylie's foot print in the sand.

When we came back to the shore (after butanding watch/swim) we all went for a dip.
With Lina and Jaucian Family.

The next set of pictures were taken at our place in Magaragad... The shore isn't as clean as the resort beach where we had the party but the water is pretty clean. With my siblings and nieces.
So there you go friends... The beauty of Donsol, Sorsogon, Philippines. Thanks for visiting and commenting.
