Our adventure continues as we sailed from the beach of Anawangin to Nagsasa Cove. We chose Nagsasa Cove over the Anawangin Cove because of the the following reasons: 1) Nagsasa Beach has a larger, wider beach perfect for beach bummers, 2) it is less popular than Anawangin but it offers a more stunning mountain backdrop, 3) the number of campers in Nagsasa is significantly lesser than the more popular Anawangin Cove.
Stunned by the great scenic views of rolling hills, high mountains, and awesome cliff formations, the 30 minutes boat ride from Anawangin to Nagsasa turned out to be one of my favorite boat rides ever.

|Hello Nagsasa Cove|
Welcome to Nagsasa Cove
It was around 4:30 in the afternoon when our feet touched the fine sand of Nagsasa Cove. But before we explored the beauty of Nagsasa, finally, we had our superduper late lunch, a chicken meal we bought earlier from the carideria at San Antonio Market. After that, we started setting up our camp, I tied my hammock on the trees, then Byron and I helped each other to pitch the tents (achievement for me, first time kong mamuno sa pag set up ng tent, haha).

The best part of this camping was when I blow out the candles (I mean fire from the lighter) on my mini cake. I really thank my ka-lakwatsas for being so thoughtful. :) I wish I had some pictures of it. Another shocking event is that, for the first time in 4 long years, I drank an alcoholic drink. It was my 20th year anyway so I switched off my alcohol barrier. We were also exchanging stories of horrific past aka ghostly encounters.

Day 2 - January 22, 2012
I was awakened by the cold morning breeze that stroke my body, it was just 5:45 in the morning. I brought out my camera to shoot the early morning scenes in the cove.

At 11:45 am, we bid goodbye to Nagsasa Cove. We sailed to our next destination, the bone-shaped Capones Island.
