day two: sunrise til’ sunset

 warning: image-heavy post. what can i say? we spent all day at the beach — 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.  so please be patient. grab a drink or snack while you wait for the images to load…*wink*
woke up at 5:00 AM due to a power outage in the resort. who need power anyway? the wind is cool and the air is fresh. we didn’t have time to waste. we changed into our suits and grabbed our beach bag filled with sunblock, carmex, my canon sx20, tripod and the sarong. took a walk on the long strip of beach and found other people up and about, taking their breakfast as well. harry and i had to wait for ours though as the resort cafe opened at 8:00 AM…haha! it was pure relaxation…what with a cottage with a very comfy bed right in front of the beach. some people may find this boring — nothing to do but stare at the water! but that’s exactly what we came here to do. to do absolutely nothing but relax, listen to some good music and the waves, eat good food and feel the sea breeze on our faces.

ps. had some fun with the ‘color accent’ setting on my camera. i’m crazy about colors! and i couldn’t help but select a few to emphasize.
blue long sleeved top – dolce and gabbana (big sister’s closet…sssshhh!)
khaki shorts – roxy
brown and white polka swimsuit – props
beach bag – roxy
bangles – props
blue tie-dyed sarong – boracay

sunnies – thrifted at carbon

Follow vanilla ice cream

    i love the idea of an outdoor bed facing the ocean. seems like you were really able to just sit back and relax with the waves crashing. what's more perfect than that?
