Early Morning at Manila Bay

* a view of the Manila Bay; somewhere in the horizon is the SM Mall of Asia

* another view of thew Manila bay;
found on the right side is the Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant

* morning strollers at Manila Bay

I recently dug up a number of photos from my files and this entry shows a group of those photos. They were taken during a morning at Manila Bay before we toured Corregidor Island (see my Corregidor series here).

Isn’t it a wonder that people are still drawn to the sea? I think it is not just for its economic value (some people do make a living from fishing on the Manila Bay); the seaside is in fact captivating. It was said that Manila Bay is one of the finest natural harbors in the world and one can really enjoy a magnificent view of the sunset in this place.

* the reality of reclaimed areas – they are not permanent

* the bait in position!

* fishes sold at Manila Bay;
too bad I forgot the name of those fishes

* manga mangingisda – local fishermen

Joggers, families, tourists, etc. Each day the Bay side area is visited by these people. If one has time, one can start from the Coconut Palace near the Cultural Center of the Philippines and walk up to the North Harbor. There are lots of sites and structures to behold. And I am personally looking forward to this activity. A walk through the length Roxas Boulevard is definitely included in my priority tour list.
