My assistant in the Philippines was nice enough to give me an introduction to some of her family and friends. After I took a car down to Tagaytay, they were nice enough to pick me up and drive down to Batangas, a beautiful oceanfront location with a warm ocean and lots of water sports 🙂

I’d never seen this “Flyfish” before, but as the boat pulls you faster, the front part of the raft flies out of the water at about a 45 degree angle and the whole raft lifts out of the water from all the air rushing under it. Tons of fun! I convinced everyone to hold on with one hand, and a few even stood up while riding with one hand with me 🙂

Katrina, Shieka, friends and I enjoying the fantastically warm ocean 🙂

Having drinks late night on the beachShieka rocking out on my ukulele. She only knew how to play guitar before, but after teaching her a handful of chords on the ukulele, she was already schooling me! 🙂
The warm air on the beach is so nice. You could hang out all night here..
I can’t remember if this was Katrina or Shieka’s screen saver, but I love it!! 🙂 A little inspiration for every day..
Filipinos also love gambling! This was some kind of “draw” poker game going on right by the beach. If you don’t who the sucker is at the table, it’s probably you.. so didn’t jump in on this one..

Riding down in the car from Tagaytay to Batangas. Did you know there are quite a few people in the Philippines who don’t even know how to drive a car..?
