It was supposed to be a breakfast picnic. The fried rice with hotdog bits and left over barbecue bits were cooked and the sandwiches were prepared. The disposables were readied too. We plan to order some food so that we won’t have to pay the entrance fee.

The roads were almost empty after two or three bottlenecks that we had to squeeze our way through. Several motorcycles and walking people can be seen. Otherwise, its a long sometimes straight, sometimes winding, road.

Instead of having our breakfast under the pine trees with the mountain view in sight, this was our view. It rained for almost the duration of our stay there.

When the rains abated, we decided to explore the place. Since Tania has just been sick last week, she can’t go far and needed to be near the concrete structures just in case it rains.

So when hubby, Trixie and Julian went exploring, we decided to stay behind.

Walking on the hanging bridge amidst pine trees.

While we were waiting for the three to come back, I had a chat with the senior guests who also had other breakfast there. These were ladies in varying age (near or past the senior citizen mark, IMO) and discovered that their husbands were brothers. One of them lives in the area where we live.  I also had a chat with resort owner’s son who happened to be a neighbor and hubby’s childhood playmate! Talk about small world.

While we were happily chatting the time away, the clouds descended and the place became dream-like and foggy. As my trio were making their way towards us, it looks like they were walking on clouds.

It’s looks like a lovely place. Where is this Julie? Sorry it rained that day. I hope you can have another chance to go there on a nice sunny day.

That’s a very good comparison, like walking on clouds. I would like to walk a hanging bridge too. I’ve never tried it.

Oh, pardon me, Melai, I thought I read Manilenya but the link is different.

Teka lang, ikaw din pala ito with your new blog 😀

Yes, Rachel, it rained but at least we got something different too, aside from the mountain photos. We got clouds too.

This is in Tanay, which I think has a higher altitude than Tagaytay. The wind was cool too since it comes from behind the Sierra Madre mountains, way over to the Pacific Ocean 😀

Niceheart, you should try it, its like walking on blind faith, for you never know if the bridge will stay on or not. This hanging bridge though is not that high but it still gives me the thrill to walk over it.

Alam mo naman dito, bihira makakita ng fog (like me) kaya happy talaga 😀

Thanks for the visit. Have a great week!

I love the foggy mystical look of your photo. It’s been raining a lot here also – quite unusual for the desert…
