Bohol Island -- A few of our Firsts

Our First Ferry Ride
to Bohol
no typhoon, we did not sink


Outriggers -- we think called pan boats


Our first sunrise


Our first market visit


Our first Caribou


Our first Halo Halo


Our first view of this sign
now we think it is the National Sign
(notice the cracked windshield for emphasis)


The site of the Blood Pact
(look it up, kinda interesting)


Our first look at Tarzier Monkeys


How do you hold these things?


Oooohhhh, why didn't you go first?


The Chocolate Hills
It is said they were formed by two giants who were fighting.


They fought by picking up large clumps of mud and throwing it at each other.


When they finished fighting, they were friends.


But neither one thought to stop and clean up their mess.


Thus, the Chocolate Hills remain as proof of their great battle.


Beneath the Chocolate Hills, Life Goes on as Normal.


Many more firsts to come.

Isn't it fun to see other places in the world and learn of their cultures and traditions. I am happy you two can still jump.
