We were on the third floor with no elevator. Oh sure, it was fine but my thighs screamed at me numerous times when I'd forget something and have to walk back up to the room. Three flights of stairs five or six times a day do a lot for a girl's shorts (warm weather wear) legs. ;-)
We did force ourselves outside and explored the beach. One of the first things we noticed when we got out on the beach were all the "sailing boats" They were catamarans but the locals called them sailing boats. So, of course, I started calling them that!
More sights along the beach:
The rest of us sat off to the side enjoying refreshments, the warmth and crowd watching.
We tried not to look too tired. We almost forgot that we were zombies who'd gotten up at o'dark thirty. We were fine. Being on the beach made everything A-Ok.
A curiously shaped volcanic formation, Willy's Rock is so closely identified with Boracay that you find it featured in practically every postcard and travel brochure on the island. The only rock formation along the entire four-kilometer length of White Beach , Willy's Rock stands out like a dark dot on the immaculately white shoreline, becoming an island at high tide. A shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary stands atop the rock.
More from the trip with Day 2 and beyond coming soon! Telling you guys is helping me remember the trip!
