But the order went like this - Tagbilaran City 4 nights, Mabini 2 nights, Anda 2 nights, Mabini 2 nights and finished off with Cebu 2 nights. Flying to Cebu on Tiger was a joy, no Manilla needs now, a short taxi ride to the port and a 2.5 hour ferry ride to Bohol and Tagbilaran City.
Bohol - The Island of Smiles. I wonder why that is? With sunsets like this on the 1st day, I think we can guess why. Holy crap is that beautiful or what!
Food was fantastic.
Music was excellent.
Oh dear me Amy boo, looks like The Joker.
Cold beers in the fridge, including Ollie in this shot (yes it was a tad warm this night).
Me/Mary/Ollie/Amy in the other. I love this before and after shot. Look at Amy and Ollie all nicely tucked up in bed before they slept.
Just an amazingly beautiful view, what a country this is!
One day we were doing little shopping, I think getting the girl's outfits for the birthday party. I spotted this. So not only does Ollie have his own feature film out there, it also seems he now his own line of shoes, ha ha!
Food galore, drinking of local beer (San Miguel), local rum (Tanduay) and local brewed alcohol from a non-fruit bearing coconut called Tuba, merriment indeed with dancing competitions, Miss Mabini, live bands, discos, acrobatics you name it.
Our beautiful friend Marisol and her son popped round for food, drink and a chat.
I was so so lovely to spend time with the kids. I fell in love with Jhea big time. Look at how she has grown in to such a beautiful girl.
Spent a lot of time, just chilling. Very relaxed after this holiday. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Then up to the top, what a climb that was. Sweating like pigs, best keep well away from "The Butcher", we rested and soaked in the views. How beautiful is this, the Mabini Province of Bohol.
Our last night in Mabini, was also disco night on the local basketball court. It was such fun, lot's of rather drunken people stumbling about and calling it dancing - including yours truly of course - this very same day I was handed a beer at 9am by some of Mary's friends as we walked up the High Street. Yep 9am, so as you can imagine by 9pm you're already well on the way.
Check out these two cool chicks on the way to boogie!
Then off to Tagbilaran early doors. An extremely sad farewell. Tears and hugs, poor Jimboy could not even lift his head from his pillow to say goodbye. Poor guys. We'll be back soon.
From Tagbilaran another ferry ride to Cebu and back to the Imperial Hotel, Cebu. Great fun as this is the one with the water slide park thing.
Having fun with the kids in the pool, I like this photo.
A monkey and Amy, hold on is that Amy and a monkey? They kind of look the same, same expression and definitely the same lipstick ha ha!
The view at night from the hotel room, full moon today, how stunning is that.
We went for a lovely meal tonight. I had the most amazing lobster .......................NOT! Long story, I'll tell another time ha ha. This will make Ollie laugh though! We still had a beautiful meal, right on the sea in the open air. Just so tranquil, absolutely beautiful.
Pondering .... "Only one day left and then back to work, shit!"
I look depressed don't I!
They even put on fireworks for us. Oh my, what a lovely night.
"Facebook, Facebook" in "Cebu Cebu", ha ha ha ha!!!
