On Saturday morning March 23 we took the ferry with Pastor Randy back to his hometown of Matnog. After lunch at his sister’s house, we were blessed to go on an amazing ride on his sister and brother-in-law’s boat. This included stops at Tikling Island and the Juag Fish Pens & Subic Beach of Calitaan Island. These places were remote pristene treasures, and truly a highlight. Tikling Island is a place that Pastor Randy has held youth camps. On Tikling Island we saw a treehouse that brought Robinson Crusoe to mind and we found some great shells. The sand on the beach was a pinkish white color. It rained while we were snorkeling but we didn’t mind. We saw a rainbow as we traveled between Tikling and the Fish Pens. Although the fish pens were supposedly closed, Pastor Randy was able to bring us there since the owner is a classmate/friend of his. We even got to swim with the fish. What a treat to snorkel in the midst of a huge school of big fish. Some were particularly colorful and unique tropical fish. There also were 2-3 foot giant clams and huge 1-2 foot spiny tiger lobsters. To top off this wonderful afternoon was an awesome red sunset. A boat trip like this towards the end of our three week trip was like have a delicious dessert after a full course meal.
