Summer Lovin’: The Quezon Escapade

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” 
― F. Scott FitzgeraldThe Great Gatsby

It was a last minute plan going to Quezon province.

Just as the summer is on, my mother (who, in the first place, is not a fan of getaway activities), engaged my sisters to take her to Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezon.

Kamay ni Hesus

Kamay ni Hesus is a famous tourist destination for visitors because it was known to be a healing church. This five hectare shrine was a good place to reflect and pray for it showcase the 50 feet statue of Jesus Christ on top of the 300 plus steps to a hill.

The feeling of satisfaction will rule you after you get to the top because there, you can see the refreshing view of the province plus the spiritual satisfaction after taking difficult steps just to get there. It was awesome. I love it there. 🙂 And for the record, my mother really enjoyed it. It made me happy, of course. 🙂

Next, we took the route to Real, Quezon.

An hour and a half ride was a challenge of course. The curves, from time to time, made our heads ache (especially to the kids, who vomitted in the middle of the trip). But those little discomfort was worth it after we saw the beach.

Yes! the beach. Though the sand was not white like those in other places, we’ve got to enjoy the place. Star of the Sea, the resort’s name, has allowed us to pay 500 pesos for the cottage. No entrance fee. Affordable indeed!

We took our time swimming in the sea and going along with the waves. It was a nice feeling. I’ve enjoyed being one of the waves even though many times I was left drowning (lol). The heat of the sun do not stop us from playing with the water. The kids loved the sand. It was amazing. 🙂

The heat is on! And just as summer displays its toll, seize every moment. Enjoy nature. See how far it will take you. 🙂
