let's go to the beach beach

I don't like the beach. There! I said it.

I am not a fan of the beach for the simple reason that you wade in salty water, get sand on all parts of your body, get possibly cut by shard shells, and then get sunburned. No sir, I can pass off on that.

I am a fan of lying by the shore on a beach chair, away from the shade of the sun. I am a fan of swimming in pools with safe walls controlling where I can land. I am a fan of staying inside a hotel room with airconditioning.

What can I say? I'm a city girl through and through.

Sadly though, my entire family are all beach babes. They all love the beach and so last weekend, we went to Batangas to the tune of "let's go to the beach beach." So off we went to the beach. Thankfully, we had the Ford Ranger with us so travelling even on rough roads was an absolute bliss. You could barely feel the humps and bumps. It was such a smooth ride that I had 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep on the passenger seat.

Soon as we arrived, my Mom wanted to take photos. Frankly, I wasn't impressed with White Cove in Laiya. When you charge at Php300 per head, I expect you to have a shower area that will not remind me of horror movies. I expect that there should be an attendant that makes sure that the bathroom is clean and the shower area clean enough for the people who went to your resort.

When you have to constantly check the shower "curtain" because it's thin enough to strain water, that's not a comfortable feeling to have. When you have nowhere to hang your towel and clothes while taking a shower, that's just a big fat no. When insects keep swarming all over while you are butt naked trying to get rid of sand in your body, it is one of the worst things to experience.

White Cove felt like a Class C resort pretending they're Class A. They failed. Thankfully, my family still enjoyed because as I said, they love the beach. They were also able to ride the banana boat while my Mom and I were on the speedboat documenting it.

I was just really happy that we didn't have to worry about the heat because we had this sunscreen from Novelina which actually worked. I didn't get sunburnt eventhough we were out in the sun for quite a while.

Overall, my family and I had a great time going to the beach simply because we were all together. After all, isn't that what family vacations are all about?
