Travel bloggers at the Cape Bolinao lighthouse

Through the invitation of Micamyx, fellow travel blogger who hails from Dagupan, a bunch of us bloggers went to the northwestern province of Pangasinan to enjoy and discover what this beautiful place has to offer. Travel bloggers are a merry lot. Especially if they’re just 20 somethings and it can be hilarious and fun. Being the kuya of the group, ahem, it’s good to be with young people.

Cape Bolinao Lighthouse
Cape Bolinao Lighthouse was one of the areas that I’ve visited with the group as I did my own traveling for some of the sites that I’ve already been to like the Hundred Islands and which they haven’t gone to before.

Located at a promontory, Punta Piedra Point in Patar, Bolinao, it gives a good open view of the sea sprawled below. The lighthouse has stood the test of time. In fact, it is a heritage structure, having been built in 1905 by Filipino, British and American engineers.

It is the second tallest lighthouse, after the Cape Bojeador structure standing at 101 feet, and is a prominent landmark that has become a tourist attraction in the vicinity. Just like us travel bloggers, we were also visitors. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to go up as the door was locked and the caretaker was away.

After enjoying the view, the group, with Mica, Marky, Cai, Gael, Darwin, Josh, Robbie, Anton and Ada, was just posing and taking pictures of each other with some, happily obliging to be models.

It was a fun afternoon of shooting, posing (but not for me, I prefer to go behind the camera), enjoying the view and learning about this beautiful and century old lighthouse. As it was already getting late, we had to go.

I help businesses get qualified leads and more sales thru better FB Ads. I'm also a Travel and Architecture/Interiors photographer, blogger and writer based in Cebu, the Philippines.
