Well, the cat is definitely out of the bag, better late than never and all that.
Confession. We did it. We thought if we said nothing about our beloved Casa
Roca, impossibly great Jim and Evelyn, we would somehow have the beautiful
house, impossibly beautiful view, splendid walk through the adjacent forest,
the gardens, the arbors, the best food on Caminguin and possibly in the Philippines,
all to ourselves, all would be secret, all would be ours, beautiful Evelyn cooking away, her
happy yet somehow wisely touched laughter, Jim's effervescent good cheer
and ever present readiness to engage in wonderful chatting about everything
under the sun, but sadly for us, gladly for Jim, Evelyn and Casa Roca,
the world is onto them.
In a word, there is no other place on Caminguin. Jim and Evelyn and Casa
Roca are the be all and end all of that isle. If we ever went back to Caminguin,
it would only be to stay at Casa Roca, and we probably would not move from there.
All is so very comfortable in a gentle way, clean, completely clean, yet in way
interfering, quiet, yet often with much laughter. We have a parting image of Jim
and Evelyn as we walk down the road. They have been to town for food supplies
so that Evelyn can weave her magic. They come round a bend, Jim driving his
beloved Yamaha and Evelyn behind. He calls out a cheering greeting, that great big
grin of his, and Evelyn leans back as they pass, her long, lithe figure stretched as she
she raises her arm in a weaving embrace.
If you ever find yourself going to Caminguin, save yourself a lot of trouble. Sleep here. Eat here.
You will love it.
