Adventure!

A fellow blogger told me that sometimes, it’s good to be in the photos too… So, here’s your eclectic eccentric beach bum enjoying a nice private island adventure. And since I rarely post photos of myself on this blog, I guess I should consider this as a sort of adventure as well. lol The water was so cool and clean and the beaches were so white… totally worth all the hours spent on the boat. xo ❤

Here I tell the story of Ademete, daughter of King Aias. It was prophesied that the princess would give birth to a powerful giant that would cause the destruction of the kingdom. Terrified by the idea of a mere woman and her ginormous monster of a son on the throne, the King sent the young maiden off to sea where no man was to touch her. (also exposing her to the dangers of the raging tempests and leaving her at the mercy of blood-lusting sea beasts.)

Poseidon saw Ademete tied to her lone boat and was enraptured by her beauty (or he prolly thought the bondage thing was quite… kinky). He came to her as the gentle saliferous breeze, through which he caressed her skin. Ademete became pregnant (immediately, I suppose. you know how quick these gods are) then the god decided to save them (how nice of him) by embracing mother and child (in other words, drowning them) so their spirit could dwell immortalized, suspended between the seabed and the frothy undulating surface.

Aias, contrite and distraught from the loss of a daughter, missing her stories, was driven to insanity. He was said to spend most of his days by the shore hoping to catch a glimpse of his Ademete. ‘til the day the kingdom (and also him) was wiped out by a… wait for it… tidal wave! Hence, fulfilling the prophesy. But Poseidon took pity on him and allowed his spirit to linger by the shore, so that from time to time, he is comforted by the soothing whispers of the waves to the sand.

Well, I sure hope you didn’t believe any of that, cos 1) it’s just mythology and 2) I just made it all up.haha

Why not? It has all the ingredients of a classic Greek myth tale: Tragedy – check. Rape by a god – check. The oracle is never wrong – check. And lastly, the unmistakable message that the tale of any woman who attempts to rise to power ends up…well, bad. -check! ^^ lol Ahh these Ancient Greeks. *scratches head* Hope you enjoyed ^^

Photos taken At Aguirangan Island. Damn, damn, damn but Caramoan Islands have PLENTY of MAGNIFICENT rock formations. It just sucks that I couldn’t spot a rock photo without either me or my boyfriend in it. Usually, it never really occurs to me to take photos without me/someone in it cos I never thought I’d be blogging but now I could only sigh cos I couldn’t very well post itsy bitsy bikini photos or my bf’s “Ab-ulous” (LOL) photos for the world to see ><

“Well, it’s not far down to paradise, at least it’s not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

It’s not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy, it gets the best of me
When I’m sailing
All caught up in the reverie, every word is a symphony
Won’t you believe me?

Well it’s not far back to sanity, at least it’s not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.”

Sailing, Christopher Cross
