Our family decided to take the 3-hour drive from our place in Aringay, La Union to Lucap Wharf in Alaminos, Pangasinan to visit one of the must see sights in the Philippines, the Hundred Islands. There are actually 123 islands. Our tour took us to probably a fifth of the islands. Among the known islands were Romulo Island (where Claudine Barreto shot some of her scenes for her show, Marina), South Island, Children’s Island, Governor’s Island, and Quezon Island. Quezon Island was the most popular and, expectedly, it had most of the visitors. We chose to drop off the Quezon Island, too, since it’s the one with most ‘sights’ to see.

  1. Hi Lorms~Don’t know if you remember me, but we met in Virginia, last June at that luncheon at (was it Jen’s?), with Amy Norfleet and about 5 others…I’m Amy from CT. (just identifying myself, lol.) I signed up for your blog posts after that, and your travels are always interesting. Just wanted to say these pics of your country are beautiful~wonderful how much you get around. 🙂 Anyhow~just thought I’d say hi…and oh yes…thrilled David is back! 😉 Take Care!

    1. Hi Amy! I do remember you 🙂 I hope we have news soon on David’s new projects. Hopefully, Christmas concerts 😉 Naree and I have our visas ready, still pushing Jackryan to get her visa. I’m glad you like my posts. Most are about travels lately. There are some that are still in draft that I haven’t had the time to update. Lol! I hope I can visit the US again soon!
