Upon raching bagasbas beach, finding a place to stay was a bit hard. We were lucky enough to be granted accomodation in Mike's kites, we opted to stay in their humble huts, apart from these, air conditioned rooms are available too.

Our surfer's shack comes ready with guard dogs? Cows

mike's kites entrane. They offer kite surfing lessons.





Here's Joy, wife owner of Mike. You guys look for her if in need of a place to stay. She can also have your meals taken care of. Spicy chicken and beer is my favorite.

Finding out where this dirt trail leads to.

Hmmm... Trash on the trail entrance, humans must be nearby





The trail eventually led us to a runway, for chartered planes.

Photo was taken before we were shooed out

Flogging of oneself or "penitensya" is a common site in privinces in the Philippines during holy week which drives tourists to witness such. Crucifiction is even performed in other provinces. Tip: stay back a few meters to keep away from flinging blood droplets when observing this feat.

Here we are grabbing pur lunch for the day at the local town of Mercedes. As fresh as fish can be.



The people huddled are fish vendors bidding their way to get the fisherman's catch of the day.

Freshly caught fish are displayed after a merchant wins the bidding.

Unprepared, here we are attempting to reach the waterfalls. It usually rains in the morning during our stay in bicol thus the sticky mud terrain.









My riding buddy's front tire refused to roll being packed with mud underneath the fender.





After my buddy's several tip overs and I predict a lot more to come seeing the trail ahead was a steep incline with more mud that's slippery as hell, it was time to concede and go back. Another reason for us to go back and conquer it some other time .

We still get to appreciate the same water that comes from the waterfalls from the river.

Time to park the steeds in the shade and take a nap.

More pictures before going home.

There'll be a lot of festivities the week after, I wish we could stay longer but we have to head back to the real world and work our asses off.








Wet ride on the way home.











Sorry about some of the pics. Coudn't find a way on how to rotate it in photobucket on these mobile devices. Till my next adventure...

And here I just figured you had a little too much SMB when you downloaded.

Nice report it looks like traffic was light.
