Ilocos Tour Series (Pagudpud): Ocean Blue (Battling to Survive)

Hello once again! I'm back and I'm telling you, today is the best day to rant and bombard you with lots of nonsense. whoa. 

Do you know why? 

It's because I have all the time in the world (just for today) to drawn myself blogging (of course, visiting your sites, reading your posts and the rest. you know what I mean, aye?).

Anyway, today is the second part of my Ilocos Tour Series which I think was the most amazing day of that tour we had. In this post (sorry for the delay), you will see how beautiful the world we're living in and how creative our creator was. 

oh! if you haven't seen the first part yet. --->Ilocos Tour Series (Laoag City)

But before that, allow me to copy+paste some information I found about the place we visited.

a 1st class municipality and a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon Island in the Philippines. According to the latest census, Pagudpud has a population of 20,385 people in 3,804 households.
The town is bounded to the south by the town of Bangui and to the east by the Cordillera Mountain Range, the town of Adams and the province of Cagayan. The South China Sea lies to the west and north. The town rolls over mountains, hills, valleys and flat coastal land. It lies 45 miles (72 km) north of Laoag City, the provincial capital, and about 350 miles (560 km) north of Manila. They reside in 3,804 homes that are spread across 83 square miles (210 km2). Most make their living through farming, fishing and subsistence retailing. Tourism is a growing part of the economy.

Pagudpud was made a municipality on February 5, 1954. Unlike Laoag City, the province's only autonomous city, Pagudpud derives its authority from the provincial government. It had previously been a part of the neighboring town of Bangui. credit to: wiki


Honestly, I have no idea about this place. The only thing I had in mind about Ilocos was the place called Vigan City. I've heard and read about the place since I was in high school and I told myself, one day, I will visit that place ;-) 

So it happens! ^_^

When my brother's friends Edwin and Mel went to explore the place (Ilocos), I was able to check some of their photos and OMG! I became even more excited to see the place myself (esp. the rock formation). It was really beautiful, really really beautiful. 

Anyway, without further ado. Brace yourself as I'm about to take you somewhere you've never seen before =)) 

To start with: Get to see where we had our first (actually, second stop. the first stop was "salt" making something..^_^ but I just thought, this is way more interesting to share :D 

Cape Bojeador Lighthouse 
-also known as Burgos Lighthouse, is a cultural heritage structure in Burgos established during the Spanish Colonial times. credit here

Cold and windy morning!
-are rock formations created by forces of the ocean on the rocky coast of Burgos, located just a few minutes further from the lighthouse. credit here
 The angry birds, rather waves. LOLS
Look! O_O we're on top! ^_^
 That's our lovebirds companion: Bryan and Ericka :)
 Catch me I'm falling!
 Earth and Sky
Bangui Windmills
The undying Jumpshots!
Kabigan Falls
Patapat Viaduct  
-also considered as the 4th longest bridge in the Philippines, is a winding bridge hugging the cliffs of the Northern Cordillera Mountain Ranges which connects the barangays Balaoi and Pansian and is about 1.2 kilometers long. Dubbed as the “French Riviera of the North” for this breathtakingly beautiful coastal drive, one can pass by Mabugabog Falls, a source of power for the mini-hydroelectric plant. This pretty bridge features a blue sea and sea birds on one side and the beautiful mountains on one side. Can’t be any nicer than that! source here
On the way to the Blue Lagoon
 last stop!
EDIT: I know pictures are enough, but just in case you wanna see the rest of the videos. ^_^

Finally! I am here =))
Up Close!
Feel the breeze and listen to the raging sound of the waves. Oh! nothing compares ^_^ It was really scary to see the waves from up above because I felt like the wind was gonna blow me and threw off to the cliff anytime. but alas! I managed to stand still. wow!
Byran as he successfully struggles his way to the top :)
