Procrastinating @ Caragman Cove

Procrastinating is the art of doing nothing. WHAT? an ART? Well, let me qualify a bit. It is true that we are always told not to delay things or don't put off tomorrow what we can do today. But here in Caragman Cove, life is very simple if not slow. No one seems to be in a hurry because they have one of the most precious thing in the world - time. People here seem to have everything they need. A mini-forest to fetch for crops and a sea to haunt for their fish. There is no electricity here but folks here never seem to mind for they have the beach for their recreation. And if you happen to visit this place, you could not help yourself but also to take things easy. Just walk along the shores of the fine sand beach, taking photos of their amazing landscape, inter-acting with people and just basically do nothing. In Caragman Cove, procrastinating is an art.

Who dare not Procrastinate?


Caragaman Cove is located in Bagac, Bataan and just a few minutes boat ride from Looc Cove and Paitan Cove. To go there, check my previous entry on Paitan Cove.

  8. sa itsura pa lang ng cove, sa kalmadong tubig at sa parang pribadong lugar, siguradong mapoprocrastinate ka talaga.

    panalo din ang weekend natin. sulit na sulit. salamat. salamat.

  9. is this place residential or private? parang mahirap atang marating. you still have to rent a boat. although that's part of the beuty of it. kung madaling hanapin sigurado super dami ng tao and it could spoil the peace of the place.....

    ReplyDelete
  10. @ mys lyke mee - it was peaceful indeed and a nice place just to doze-off.

    ReplyDelete
  11. @ dyosa - life is good and thanks to places like this, life is much simpler.

  15. @ sidney - thanks sidney. the place really is beautiful in a rural way.

    by the way, what is DOF?

    ReplyDelete
  16. @ ever - hala. wag naman paa kasi di ka na makakalakad nyan. pero pwede ka naman gumulong na lang sa buhanginan.

    parekoy, canon user ako eversince eh. pero wala naman ako masasabi bad against nikkon. ok siguro yun.

  19. @ pusang gala - most of the coves here are privately owned but they do welcome wanderers in the place.

  20. pagtingin ko pa lang sa mga photos, relax na relax ang feeling ko. na miss ko na ang mga ganyang lugar na peaceful kahit walang electricity masaya!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's so pretty there that I don't think one could call that procrastinating. That's living. I loved especially the photo of the stick or branch up close with the faded bay and beach behind.

    ReplyDelete
  22. a perfect place of serenity amidst the chaos of city life..good job!i'm gonna include this in my list of places to visit.
    anyway,i appreciate your comment!that's so nice of you,thank you.we hope God will give us soon..

    ReplyDelete
  23. looks like a great place to procrastinate...huh? LOL!

    I like the photo of the rocky shoreline... sooo pretty. Love the contrast of textures.

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh i can procastinate for days on end oman. with a place as beautiful as this, who cares if the days pass me by?

    ReplyDelete
  25. LS: You have captured it so simply. What a neat place, I have a hard time thinking that there is no electricity. That certainly changes everythig. I think rather than calling it Procatination; I would have called it Relaxation. Thanks for this neat trip, friend.

  26. I think my son has perfecte3d the art of procrastination. I don't know where he got it from but it's definitely not from me. hehe.

    The first picture is the one I love the most. The focus is on the brach and the background seemed to have stepped aside so we can concentrate on the beauty of the tree (shrub?) branches. Lovely!

    I can't help not to imagine how the nights are in that island. If there are no electricity, then it would be very dark and the noise of the waves and nucturnal insects are all around. Hmmm... for a city person like me.. it's going to be scary. hehe.. but definitely something to get used to. In time they will be the only thing that will lull me to sleep.

    thanks.

  27. I'm guilty of procrastinating too! Let's not mention it. ;)

    Sometimes it's awesome to just sit back and do nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think I may have found my place to call home since I am the queen of procrastination--just ask my husband :)

    Beautifully presented again, thanks for the tour.
