Our Dive Solana Get-Away

Here is Dive Solana Resort, we stayed here for more than a week, after the Eagle Point visit, and yet the kids dont want to leave this paradise at all. As I said in my previous post, it's the first time that I heard them saying they dont want to go back home anymore. And you know what, I agree wholeheartedly. There's magic in this place.
The first sunset that we captured, taken in front of our beach front cottage.Our first glimpse of our beach front cottage, and we fell in love with it.
Traditional indigenous materials made up the whole resort, even the bathroom!

Why MC want to stay in the Philippines, the companionship she found there

MC loves her princess bed.

IC, too.

Snack time again!

At the club house.

collecting shells and stones

Although they cannot build sandcastles because the shore is not sandy, the kids found a way to build stone castles.

The Sombrero Island is the small island, and the island on the far left is where Sepoc Beach is.

Here I am

Hi Raq. Kindly delete the earlier message. I'm afraid I had several windows open on my computer and I typed the wrong comment in your box. Sorry about that.
