It’s the tail-end of summer in the Philippines so for the past several weeks, my social media feeds have been filled with photos like the one below.
Looking at such photos always made me want to go to the beach, but when we finally did, it was cold! And I’m not used to facing an ocean. I don’t know what to do with it. Sure, people swim. But it’s cold, and the waves are very big. I miss small islands, and island-hopping, and snorkeling. But it seems that will have to wait until I get home. In the meantime, wading in up to ankle-deep will have to do. This is one of those occasions where expectation and reality don’t match :-S
