At The Beach

We had a whole day brown-out last Saturday from 7AM to 5PM. Hubby decided that we need to go to the beach to escape the heat for not having electricity. Just imagine, whole day without electric fan, AC nor TV. That is so boring. We left the house around 8 AM with hubby, my youngest brother, my 2 nieces and 2 sisters-in-law. My other did not come because our small car can only accommodate that much so he decided to stay home and watch the house, lol!

We went to San Fabian beach which is a 45 minute drive from our house. The rent of the cottage where we stayed was only 150 pesos. It's cheap this time of the year. During summer, expect that the rent will be higher and that cottage might be renting from 300 to 400 pesos. The beach was not crowded unlike during summer. Lots of vendors flocked to our cottage selling different stuffs like dried fish, fresh fish, knives, etc. I bought boneless bangus, 5 pieces for 100 pesos. Not bad really. In the market, the price is 90 pesos for only 3 boneless bangus. I also bought squid for 100 pesos a kilo which is a lot cheaper than in the market. Then my sister-in-law and I split the cost of a bunch of fresh sari-sari fish for 300 pesos all in all. We had lots of fish and my brother cooked some of it and we ate it for lunch along with rice, ampalaya with eggs and ground beef and grilled hot dogs. We had a sumptuous lunch and as usual, we ate more every time we are at the beach. We had a nice picnic there.

Meanwhile, while waiting on our lunch to be ready, my 2 nieces were enjoying the beach. In fact they stayed there until it's about time for us to leave. They didn't mind the sun at all. Hubby and I didn't go swimming. We just wanted to feel the breeze and stayed at our cottage most of the time. We left the beach at 4:15 PM. When we got home, the electricity is back.
