Wow Bohol! Day 3 - April 5, 2009

Day 3 of the Wow Bohol Summer Trip.
  • Early morning mass at Dauis Church
  • Relax at the Bohol Beach Club
  • Dinner at Cafe Lawis

Since it was Palm Sunday that day we decided to take an early morning mass at Dauis Church. We waited for the mass to start, only to find out that it has already started. The lay ministers clad in Apostle costumes paraded with the churchgoers as they relived the days that Jesus entered Jerusalem. The mass was offered in the native Visayan language.

After hearing mass, we walked back to Coco Grove to ready ourselves for a relaxing day trip at Bohol Beach Club.

Since it was no longer part of our 3-day, 2-night tour, we needed to source a van that would take and fetch us to BBC. We were able to haggle at a cheap price for a round trip (PhP900 if I recall correctly).

We stayed in Bohol Beach Club the entire day just to feel the summer breeze, enjoy the powdery white sand and simply relax with the help of the soothing waves, the hammocks that were attached to the trees, and the beautiful view.

We ate buffet lunch at the clubhouse, which offered a wide array of Filipino dishes. I can never forget the tandem of the Lechon Kawali and Pork Binagoongan! Whoa!

After lunch we decided to simply hang out at seaside. Some took pictures whiles others slept.

We were fetched by the van at around 4:30 pm. We then headed back to Coco Grove to get dressed for our last dinner of the trip at Cafe Lawis, the coffee shop beside the Dauis Church.

This day was the most relaxing of the 4-day, 3-night series. :)

If you haven't visited Bohol yet, well it's never too late. The island is filled with beautiful wonders, from hills, to rivers, to flora and fauna, to churches, to caves, to beaches. I've already been there thrice, but if I have another chance to go there, I would never think twice.
Explore the Philippines!
