The boy held the heavy metal anchor of the outrigger boat, banca, to be exact, as we were approaching Cabugao Dako Islet in Isla Gigantes, Iloilo. His sun kissed skin contrasted with his loose white shirt. His mouth agape and was awaiting for the captain’s go signal to drop the anchor.
Cabugao Dako Islet is one of the many in the Isla Gigantes group that is part of Carles, the easternmost town of Iloilo province. I visited this beautiful part for its beaches as well as to unplug from work and online to celebrate my birthday last February.
This is just a very beautiful place.
Isla Gigantes Escape series coming soon.
