June 2018 ~ Our Legazpi tour on 10th of June didn't just end at Daraga Church. We still went driving around the area till we saw more local sights and stuffs.  The colorful part was seeing lots of local transport on the road Philippines was famous for .. The Jeepney

Well, we didn't ride in any of these jeepneys this time coz we had our own rented car . But for sure we would ride one soon. We drove arond the area of  Brgy. Buraguis in search for one of the the seaside  places in Legazpi ... Puro Beach by Legazpi Boulevard.

We had a quick look around Puro Beach along Legazpi Boulevard and ventured into the sea to let the children touch the water and play a bit as we, the adults enjoyed the sea views around us. Very nice place surrounded by seaviews and far away mountains. Simply amazing sights... oh wow !

We were even greeted by local way of life around this area. A poor man's day spent carrying stuffs and travelling by foot. For how long would he be walking ? Most probably for several kilometers ... to an undisclosed destination . 

 The views so attractive that my brother couldn't resist himself from taking a selfie with the sea views as background. Go go go brother ... don't be shy. Lol ...

Legazpi rocks ! Hurrayyyyy ...

The highlights of this place is not only the awesome scenic views. We also happened to see a military training happening in the vicinity. It was like we were caught in the middle of persian gulf war. Tanks below and military helicopters circling above us and military personnels all over the place. I was like... what's going on here ?

Military people were willing enough to be in our pictures too. They even said hello to us ... woohoooo ! The kids were so excited to see the tanks and helicopters too. Was it so obvious we enjoyed the photoshoots with them ? 😁☺😄

Niece enjoying the ride ... lol

When we headed for our village after the Legazpi tour, we had to stop by the side of the road to check on these seafoods for sale. I was drooling upon seeing these fresh seafoods. Oh wowowow !!! Yummy ... I bought the crabs uncle vendor was holding .  Even some prawns too !  I was a happy shopper for sure .

Uncle please give me a discount ok ? .. I will buy them all I promise !

Nothing can beat the fresh seafood in abundance in almost all parts of the Philippines. Bicol region is so blessed with natural resources. From now on,  I would be eating most of these seafoods in the next few days too coz my mother's hometown we were heading to was by the seaside as well. Fish... sea shells, etc....

 Can't wait to be there  ... 😍😘😗
