Third Stop
Shimizu Island
Lunch 🍴 CR Break 🚻

We can't have our lunch in the beach since there are no available space. That's why we need to have our lunch at the boat. The twist is we can't also find space to dock our boat and we end at the left side of the beach where the waves are strong.

But before lunch, let me tell you a short story.
Once upon a time, there is this girl who have a weak stomach. One day, this girl was called by nature. The girl has a "bf" and asked her to go with her. The girl said to her bf that if you really are my bf you will go with me. So to prove her friendship with the girl, she go with her.
To make the story short, here is the evidence. Haha! ✌

Fourth Stop

Sailing ⛵

Fifth Stop

After freshen-up...

Bf and I are planning to give a little surprise for Lj & Bi. Perfect timing, we are going to change location. We told them to go first at the Squidos Hilltop and we will accompany Abril since she has something to buy. Thanks Abril for being our alibi. But the challenge is we can't find any cake. Bakeries and other stores were already closed. Indeed, we can say that we are in a province or should we say in an island. The only open are groceries. No choice, we need to be creative. We bought cupcakes and lollipops to make something in replacement to the cake. But, we have another challenge we can't find candle except for the big and long candles. We decided not to buy candle since we can't find any.

We asked the help of restobar staff to put the lollipops in the cupcakes. We also ask if they have candles. Haha!

Time to go back to our cottages. But before that, picture taking first.

Time to sleep and get some rest.
Good Night El Nido! 🌙🌠
See you tomorrow.
