Ternate Beach Outing

Sunday prior to our Potipot Island trip, my family traversed the South Luzon Expressway and reached for the beach of Ternate. With us were my niece-in-law, my little grandnephew and daughter’s special friend. Tracing the road leading to Caylabne Bay Resort, we took a halt at the Gregorio Lim Marine Training Camp gate and asked for the direction to the beach. After paying a minimal entrance fee at the military guard on duty, we drove a more or less 1 kilometer distance and passed by the military barracks area, stopping once in a while for herd of goats and flocks of chickens that cross the road. Occasionally, we would be surprised by a monkey or two that dart out from the bushes. From the Camp gate which is on a mountaintop, we descended to the scenic shoreline area. The crystal blue water and the white sand is so lovely that the beach-aholic in me found it so alluring. There are cottages or rooms for overnight visitors, but on that moment, all the rooms are fully booked. Good that we were able to grab a picnic table and just set up our very reliable picnic buddy on the side, our tent.




















It was indeed an enjoyable outing despite some glitches. Where on earth have you heard of a picnic without food? Well, there were snacks to nibble on but the food I prepared for lunch was forgotten and was left on the stove at home.. We had no choice but to look for a restaurant to get some food. Hubby took pride in bringing us to his fave restaurant on the nearby area but it is closed that day being a Sunday. The big kiddos prefer to have Jollibee instead. We had to turn back and look for a Jollibee store. After a long while of driving and asking people on the street, we found the sought after fastfood store. We bought buckets of chickenjoy and other fare that seemed enough to pacify the group.


Knowing that our picnic food wasn't enough, hubby brought us to Hap Chan in Makati City for dinner on our way home. At least, we all had a real satisfying meal after a so-so picnic food. That dinner sure covered up the anxiety we had early on.







In the meantime, please bear with me for not dropping by your blogs lately. I will make it up to you as soon as I have time. Happy TGIF to all!
