Driving North we reached the musical capital of Bohol - the town of Loboc, home of the internationally-acclaimed Loboc Children's Choir. The town takes pride of its main river, Loboc River. Our stomachs were grumbling and so we took the river cruise. It had lunch buffet priced at Php280 per head. Kids cost at Php140 per head. Quite expensive! Adrian merely ate a chicken and 2 pcs of barbecue. Anyways, we just enjoyed the food because we had to eat all we can! Yey..haha! This boat could carry around 40 - 50 persons on board. Food was available like fish, chicken, vegetable, pork, spring rolls, fruits and native delicacies. Hmm..yummy! We enjoyed lunch to the rhythm of the guitar man on board who played songs to the tune of Moon River, Top of the World and the like.

Very nice indeed! So light-hearted, so close to nature, and tummies were so full, haha! The boat cruised down the river around maybe 20 minutes or so till it reached the "waterfalls" - it was like water falling 6 feet down, haha. But it doesn't matter, 'cause our cruise stopped by this boat that had maybe like 15 kids aboard, each playing a ukelele to sing us wonderful songs. Such an amusing sight! I can see they take pride with the Loboc children's talent and love for Music.

The cruise lasted for more than an hour. That means it was an hour's worth of making sure my kid doesn't jump from the boat! The entrance/ exit areas did not have railings, although most of the boat did have railings. Anyways, it was such a great way to relax and to see happy faces on board, local and foreign tourists alike.
