Sunrise @ Paitan Cove

Waking-up in a world with no electricity and any trace of civilization is always a welcome change from our busy and hectic urban life. I had one of my most sound sleep in days... the sound of waves splashing on the shores, the constant cry of tree lizards and the consonance of leaves dancing in the gentle breeze all add up to a night of solace. And as I wake-up, the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen greeted me and welcoming me to a day of nurture. It's time to go back to basics.


Ripples of Sand and a Lovely Sunrise


Our boat - the only means of transportation in the place.


The morning sun reflecting in the calm sea.


Morning is the perfect time to catch fish.


Two fisherman seizing their catch.

Morning has finally broken at Paitan Cove

  9. Very beautiful place. Wow, love the first photo where the sky looked like some Gods living up there. :) The beach looked so lovely and yes, I too love to watch the activities on the beach whether it is the fishermen or some sea creatures crawling along the beach. Looking forward to more photos of the lovely place.

  13. Hi Norman! Sorry for the long delay in coming here, but the last two weeks were too hectic!
    Finally I managed to get to your blog, and see some wonderful pictures! Loved the sunrise. It's great that someone wakes up early to catch pictures that otherwise I wouldn't catch in bed... ;))
    Wonderful Ciudad Real de Acuzar!!
    Meanwhile Blogtrotter is back to Greece in November 2007! Hope you enjoy and have a great week!

  22. is this still in BATAAN? I also love the sunrise in the countryside.....


    actually anytime between the sunrise and the sunset, when it get dark, there's nothing much to see, but the quietness and peace of coarse is always a welcome thing to a weary soul.....
