Corregidor Island Philippines by the Moon Light (Part 3)

I found new love.
Falling in love over and over again.

Bumabalik tanaw sa mga larawan.Umaapaw ang paghanga sa natatanging taglay niyang kagandahan.

The outcry for freedom, the many battles she endured and lives who perished on this rock those "scars of war"on the face of Corregidor constitutes a rich history of the Island.
Scars so beautiful in my eyes.

I realized in some way this is one good reason of blogging. Reaping pure joy of satisfaction sa pagbabahagi ng mga ito. The experiences the photos as I recall them and write today are interestingly "One acre of Diamond" in comparison.

Sa pag papatuloy ng aking Corregidor Island hopping.

Next activity after the tour.The sunset sight viewing on top of the hills followed by the Night tunnel exploration under the ground after the sunset.Para makisalamuha sa mga dead spirits of corregidor.Exciting.
Here are the photos.

Day tour end around 2:30pm at the North dock to get on board bound to manila

Because I took the overnight package tour I'm riding back to the hotel

Enjoying the cool breeze of one beautiful afternoon by the sea road along the way to hotel.

View overlooking the the island of Caballo

road by the Hill

Caballo Island another view angle

The driver dropped me in this spot.Taken from the viranda of the hotel entrance.Majestic view.

I meet the other 2 over night tourist from the the early trip who have enjoyed free time starting 12 pm exlporing the Island by themselves.
This is room#210 on the 2nd flr. at the left corner with two windows & a balcony.I like everything on it.the dark wood panels ,floor, capiz window, native blinds and the clean white bed sheets and towels.

That was the first day. living in the mountain side by the beach.

Napasarap ang tulog ko, so I missed the sunset.

So,the last activity was the tunnel exploration under ground.I'm not really a fan wanderer of darkness but this will complete the corregidor experience.

The silence was deafening. Only some constant drippings could be heard from a distance.One visitor said " it is the most stygian blackness imaginable, a darkness so total it can paralyze all the senses."

We stumbled on some pieces of bones left around and meet unusual living creatures crawling on the ground. a strange coldness touching your skin somewhat this tour is mysterious and one should not be missed by those who come to visit. Momentarily we were disconnected from outside world alone with the dead.This is it. The corregidor experience of world war 2.

With our flashlight and helmet on we dangerously climbed both narrow and wide openings and lost on our way out. Ofcourse it was a joke.

the tunnel is 835 ft long East -west passage 24 ft wide height 18 ft branching into 13 laterals on its north and 11 on the south side.It is under solid rock.

a lonesome sea creatures crawling on the ground
not surprisingly, bones sighting

with our helmet and flaslight trying to climb the opening up above
Other photos

We end the night with a sumptous dinner at the terrace by the moon light over looking malinta hills and south china sea.
I forgot to take photo.

Great view. My girl would be running there on December 19. I believe she'll enjoy it.
