Homeland trip...part 2 - Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte

From Bataan, we headed off to Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, it was another long drive but it was worth it! We got there around 11:00 pm, had a good night sleep and the next day we woke up with these peddlers by the beach! They were selling bracelets, and necklaces made of shells, corals and pearls. My kind of wares, and they were a good price too, so I must have bought about two dozens of 'em and gave a few to friends.

Pagudpud beach... boy, those waves can really grab you to the deep part! My suit was full of sand when I got up too!

We've found out the cure for arthritis ... warm sands! lol My sisters and I (in blue)... having fun being a kid again! lol

...our oldest brother, trying to build his (sand) castle! ;-)

Great time was had by all.

You did enjoy Pagudpud, and had fun there. This is a place I've heard before, but never been to. I should visit it...if ever I get back home.

It's really wonderful that you are so close to your family. Would be nice if you can get together yearly.

Pagudpod is a must to visit - so I hope to do that soon. And I would so enjoy looking at those trinkets :)

What are your plans for the weekend?

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
