Canigao Island sojourn
It was time for our family’s annual sojourn during the Holy Week break. Usually we’d go camping in some isolated island and get close to nature. This year, we decided to head on to Canigao Island in Matalom, Leyte – about 2 and a half hours from Tacloban City, and a mere 15-minute motor boat ride from the mainland.
There’s no electricity in the island, so no computers and only minimal use of cellphones. What a bliss!
We slept in 3 tents bathed under the enchanting glow of a full moon, did a lot of swimming, snorkeling and simply enjoyed the hours and minutes slip away.
And, yes, there was lots of photography time.

There’s a solar-powered lighthouse in the island.
And a treehouse, too!
That’s the family pet, Kitch, at lower right above having the time of her life swimming 😉
