At the Aquamarine, Philippine Eagle behind me.
Together with my brothers and sisters we ventured the road from our hometown Cagayan de Oro City Philippines to Plaridel Ozamis, City Philippines. It was a great and sunny day for us, as we crawled down the path towards my sister in-law’s hometown. It was actually a 9 hour road travel. Though it was truly a tiring travel, we enjoyed it a lot since we were as well dropping by some of the place’s incredible panoramic sceneries. Plaridel is considered as an unscathed province where most of the residents have their own rice field for living. Side by side, you can see massive areas of rice field and you can smell the alluring smell of rice.
After an hour of traveling, my brother decided to drop by at one of the province’s incredible sceneries which is the “Aquamarine”, here we saw various types of monkeys from huge to small.
The inner facade of the church in Dapitan where Rizal usually attended the mass.
We have seen different kinds of birds, snakes, Philippine eagle, fishes, turtles; but we don’t have the chance of seeing the dolphins since we need to travel it by boat.
As we arrived at my sister in-law’s house, we took for a rest and in the next day, we ventured again their road going to Dapitan, the place where our national hero Dr.
was exiled. First we dropped by at the church where he used to attend the mass every Sunday.
It was an awesome historic church; its façade features the history of the hero during his time.
After that we continued to travel the road to his place, exactly at his house. We visited his shrine; we have seen some of his things he used to when he was still in here.
He’s table, the pictures of his women and more.
Still at the Aquamarine.
His house is truly an incredible example of the old houses before, beside his house is his pool where he took his bath. It has been said that he made it himself, there are in fact some stuffs in his house which believed to be the things he made during his existence. His house nestled in a century old trees which believed to be older than him, and indeed still arising up to this moment. These trees are designated as centennial trees. The frontage of his house on the other hand is an incredible pristine beach surrounded with cute cottages. There are various foreigners and locales visited the place during that time, and I do believe that since then until now, the place of Rizal in Dapitan is one of the most visited places in the Philippines.
