Emerging paradise

Wonder against the blue … About 45 minutes of boat ride from the shore of Mambulao town in CamNorte is this islet of Calalanay (top photo), where the sky unfurls its deep-blue smiles on a clear day to those who come to forget for a few hours the noise of a harried life back home. Photography enthusiast Farmer Nestor Non and family descended on the island’s smooth and powdery sand one fine day, awed by the distant sing-song of white-crested waves lapping on the shore and the excited shrill of the sailing birds that once in a while would melt into the greens on the island. Instantly, he fell in love with the spectacles that popped before his eyes – a miracle of nature unexpected elsewhere. True, the beach is a far cry from that of Parang’s, about seven kilometers away down south, which is continually pestered by community rubbish mindlessly dumped into the bay waters day in day out by coastal villagers as well as those who live in town. Coming to Calalanay will always be – shall we say – heaven.  Mark your calendar for the big celebration of nature -- here on Calalanay Island. This summer. – MWBuzz text by ALFREDO P HERNANDEZ and pictures by FARMER NESTOR NON
