The Eid Al-Adha vacation this year passed by so quickly! As usual, I didn't use my eight-day rest to do all the things I wanted to do. I didn't clean our cabinets and pantry. I didn't iron as much clothes as I can so I wouldn't have to iron them when work and school starts, and I didn't declutter our room. We just went to the beach which was more than 400 kilometers and four hours away from Riyadh and stayed there for a day, watched movies when we went back home, ate and slept the vacation away which made me guilty but happy at the same time.
But there's one thing I promised I would do this week and that is to finish the Ilocos provinces posts. Let me start with Kapurpurawan Rock Formation.
When I first saw it featured on blogs and travel websites, I knew I had to see it in person. I honestly didn't know it was included in our itinerary so I got excited when I knew it was.
Maybe, it's the marsh. Call me whatever you like but I just don't appreciate them. I don't like looking at slimy, greenish and brownish deposits on rocks. But please don't let my preferences affect your plan of visiting the rock formation. Believe me, the whole place is beautiful!
We reached the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation on foot but didn't get too near to touch it. We didn't have enough time because we still had to check out the Bangui Windmills.
At last, I saw windmills! I haven't seen one in my entire life and it made me regret that I didn't go there on a morning when the sky isn't overcast and the waves aren't too strong.
The waves that afternoon were too strong that I almost died when I saw Sunday and her friends chase their slippers which were taken away by the waves. They could have drowned right there and then. I was so thankful that Fred was near to get the kids and their slippers back. It was a tragedy waiting to happen. And I was so thankful that God took care of us then.
