THE AFTERNOON STROLL FROM WHITE BEACH TO DINIWID BEACH

Realizing that we were trapped for hours within the confines of our hotel room, watching television and activating social network accounts, we decided to move and heed the call of exploration.

This will be my first time to walk past Station 1 of the famed White Beach and discover another beach of the island –Diniwid.

THE WHITE BEACH LANDMARK
The afternoon stroll at the White Beach is quite rewarding.  Local fishermen transform themselves into tour guides as paraws are prepared for tourists wanting to experience sunset lying on the side nets of the sailing boats.  Then, there are Korean nationals who care less of their footwear as they step on the sugary fine white sand of the beach and took turns on taking photos of themselves.  Kite surfers and skim boarders boast their routines and depended on the mercy of the wind.  Their passion is overwhelming.  There are varied personalities and interest that converge and occupy the long stretch of the white beach.  That is how White Beach registered in my senses.

At the far end is a mountain where a wooden cross stands at its peak.  In what I suppose is a dead end, rock formations breaks the calm waters at this side.  A concrete and swerving pathway beside a cliff of shallow waters then leads to the other side of Boracay – tranquil and calm Diniwid Beach.

As soon as the boundary of the White Beach and Diniwid Beach is reached, common sightings are the fishing vessels and nets docked hanging on the limestone rock formations.  Local fishermen and the neighborhood rested to have their fix of alcohol intake in the form of gin.  They position themselves in a corner where their business is uninterrupted.  Indeed, a perfect way to relax for the weekend.

TO THE SPIDER HOUSE
The stroll continues as we opted to settle at an in-house restaurant of a resort for the sunset.  The Spider House of Diniwid Beach is our final destination for this afternoon stroll.  The bamboo tree house is popular to foreign tourists.  Beer and food prices may be quite expensive but the reward of a panoramic seascape augments it.  Bottles of redhorse and a pizza comforted us as we sit at the edge of the tree house with adjacent ladder to guide guests who wants to take a plunge on the cyan waters of Diniwid Beach.  Nestled on a cliff, the choice of diving straight to the waters is a given.

I was tempted to swim but the yearning to loiter, sit down and observe guests as I feel the sea breeze was overpowering.

Night time came and we have to go.  The number of guests increased as others came for dinner.  Relatively intoxicated, we called the day off and went back to Station 2 for our dinner.
