Camiguin always has that halo of clouds covering the tops of the 7 volcanoes on the island. The picture isn't very clear because, well, the camera guy isn't very good at taking long distance landscapes and the camera only has 5x optical zoom.
We didn't waste any time. We hired a multicab immediately at the pier and drove straight to CamiguinAction. Well, we dropped off my cousin Manny at Tita Mercy's house, and then drove straight onward.
CamiguinAction Geckos have found a local artist who will carve Geckos for them. The Geckos are reasonably priced and can be made available for sale to guests. Price depends on size, of course.
This one isn't for sale though, being the centerpiece of the resort restaurant :-)
The CamiguinAction owners collect these antique (well, circa 1930 or so) glass fishing net buoys. In a time without plastics, these blown glass balls are completely closed and were attached to nets to keep parts of the net above water. They could also be used as buoys.
The accomodations are lovely and very comfortable, we had a great time.
It's too bad I didn't think to take any pictures of the bathrooms either in the cottage or the shared bathrooms for the budget rooms. They're all very clean and comfortable. I had a great time in the bathrooms (and that's not something I usually boast about. at all :-). Some of that enjoyable time was the twice a day baths that Timmy had in our bathroom. He's great with baths, very calm and always enjoying the experience.
Our good friend Christian Asch manages the resort. He's also the PADI certified scuba diving instructor there. He's got a divemaster to help with large group dives but I didn't get to meet him this trip as he was on vacation.
We hadn't planned on diving on the first day, so we just rested. We were too lazy to go to Mambajao or anywhere else. There wasn't any reason to, really.
The cottage has a desk on the balcony. There's another desk inside. I had my laptop on the inside desk, plugged in, ready to play Desktop Tower Defender, which I'd downloaded and then kept around in an open browser while my laptop was suspended (so the browser window was always available).
I thought the bamboo suspended from the string was just decorative, or maybe some tarpaulin was missing for protection from strong winds or something. The next day I saw our neighbors in the other cottages hanging bathing suits from them. And then I was enlightened.
