Photo Hunt 4: Water

PSHunt


I've been out of town for several days. Will be sharing about it on succeeding posts. Meanwhile, here's my photo for this week's theme, Water. Right timing since it's summer time here in the Philippines. Here are some of my water pictures taken one summer day not so long ago. :)



This picture was taken while on a boat going to Dos Palmas Resort, Puerto Princesa, Palawan. This is quite an experience for me. Our boat stopped for about ten minutes in the middle of Honda Bay. The water is kind of greenish gray which, according to fellow passengers, means we were in the deepest part of the sea. But everything went well as the motorized boat just needed some lubricant for propelling.



And this one's taken at Club Manila East. My hubby and daughter are both water persons and enjoys kayaking even on a pool. :) Since I'm the less adventurous among us, I'm often the one assigned to do some picture taking. I don't really mind since I love capturing special moments with my family. :)

What a nice picture - I love that your husband and daughter are kayaking in a pool. ha! So cute!

btw, thanks for visiting my photo (the hanauma bay in hawaii one at babytalkers.blogspot) :)

Toni said...

Good photos for the theme. I would also be the one taking pictures on the sidelines. Kayaking in the ocean looks like fun but takes more bravery than I've got. :) Thanks for dropping by this week.

Welcome back Lynn. Hope you had a wonderful trip. Looking forward to hear about it soon.

Lovely photos! I've never tried kayaking before. It looks exciting and fun to do.

Thanks for visiting my photo hunt. Take care!

Hi thanks for visiting my blog. Yours is cool and Philippines have some nice diving spots that I would love to go to - on of such is called Anilao if I got it correct.

Lulu said...

Wow, the beach looks amazing there! And that is one big pool! Must have been a fun trip.

Amy in NY said...

I am generally the designated photo taker too! I don't think I'd try kayaking in the ocean - I'll stay on the "big boat"!
Thanks for stopping by my blog as well.

I don't know that I'm brave enough to kayak, especially out in the ocean!! The pool might be fun though!

lissa said...

That looks like fun. I am also not as adventurous.

It's not quite summer hear in Ohio yet but I can imagine myself swimming in the pool already.
Great entries.

I've only kayaked in a river, but a pool would be much more my safety zone. . your pictures are so inviting, I'm ready to go kayak in the pool and float on a bigger boat in the ocean. Thanks for visiting my water photos.

Lynn, what lovely photos. I'm always the one taking photos, too, which means that I am rarely in any family photos! *sigh* Thank you stopping by Pollywog Creek and I'm glad you enjoyed the sunset!

Those are beautiful. I'm with you -- I'd rather be taking the pictures than be in the midst of things. Thanks for stopping by!

Claude said...

Lots of water, here as required by the theme ;)
I was in Manila once, a long time ago in the middle of a hurricane. So water there was, all over, flooding the town.
These are lovely photos.
