First Beach Trip of the Year

I'm glad that I spent my first beach trip this year with my folks. Going to the beach together is something that my family hasn't done in more than 2 decades, I think. Before, it was just the 5 of us - my parents, my two siblings and myself. Now we are 9 - the original 5, plus my brother's wife and their 3-year-old daughter, and my sister's husband and their 1-year-old daughter. The sight of them together enjoying the sun, sand and water was just beautiful.

Our beach vacation was spent last Saturday and Sunday in Balai Resort in San Juan, Batangas. It's a nice place, really, despite the turbid waters. If you don't like crowded beaches, this is one of the places to go. I like the vast sand areas - you can play volleyball, fly a kite or just sit around a bonfire with friends. The sea is at the east so you can catch a beautiful sunrise or moonrise there. I also like that the rooms are located in front of very large fishponds. You can actually go fishing with the bamboo fishing rods that they provide. Buffet meals are served there. You can't cook your own meals there but you can bring your own snacks or "pulutan". Drinks such as sodas, juices and beers are available at the clubhouse.
