The mass exodus to the beach began during the Holy Week. We decided to wait until after Easter, when there wouldn’t be such a big crowd. We went to our favorite resort, Anvaya Cove, in Morong, Bataan. We’ve been going there since 2011, as guests of a family friend who’s a member. I wrote about our first trip here (with some nice photos).
We stayed two nights, three days. Whereas before we spent most of our time at the beach or at the swimming pools, this time we decided to explore the rest of the resort. On our second day we took an afternoon walk, and met a flock of ducks that lived near the resort’s man-made lake.
We crossed a bridge and walked towards a lawn with small mango trees, and the ducks swam across the lake and followed us! When they realized we weren’t going to feed them (we didn’t think to ask the Anvaya Cove staff what the rules were about feeding the ducks), they walked off to the clubhouse to importune some sympathetic visitors.
I guess you can tell how well-managed a place is by its happy ducks! My sister, brother-in-law, niece and I had a grand time.
