The first time we came to Moalboal was in July 2011. We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking and relaxing in the garden after every sumptous meal prepared by Hale Manna's Chef Frank. The owner, Ms. Becky Smith made sure that all of her lifeguards are with us everytime we venture out into the waters. When i saw the varied marine life, i promised to myself that i'll come back to bring my children and grandson along. And so, by October 2011, we were there once again. Although it was the typhoon season this time of the year, the weather conspired to give us an enjoyable stay from sunrise to sunset. Only at night did it rained. My grandson, aged 5 loved animals and all sea creatures, he even named the resident lizard in the house, Greko. In the afternoons during low tide, he enjoyed counting all the starfishes of varied colors and sizes that he encountered. We even had the opportunity to go to Pescador Island and on our way watch the dolphins swim near our boat. At Pescador and the marine sanctuary, the family enjoyed snorkeling, found schools of sardines and deep sea divers. The water thereat was very cold but refreshing. To make the story short, guess who's promising to return this time? It's my grandson, with his Daddy in tow!
