Each of us must spread the waves of love and peace and create an atmosphere through our thoughts, our words and interactions with others. – Senora Roy
Puerto Princessa Pristine Beach
A perfect atmosphere takes less serene moments and creates special ones. At Pristine Beach in Puerto Princessa, ambience is on high and set to “surround sound” with no gaps. There are no lapses of action in this moment. Armies of cicadas in the distance are setting time as “Waka Waka Africa” joins in to fill the background. This moment is perfect for thinking about.. well, nothing. The water is a wonderful mixture of green and blue. Across the bay, cloud-capped mountains are looking so green the possibility of them never feeling the touch of human beings crosses my mind, if only for a second.
In reality, where HAVEN’T we been? Only one can hope there are some places still unknown to us all. Local families are having a swim and a group of boy are skimboarding and some are quite good. Friends are sharing drinks and overindulging but it’s okay. Nothing is getting in anyone’s way here. My mind in a perfect state, able to drift away and think. About nothing. Thanks again, to this beautiful atmosphere.The moment becomes plural and passes, along with a few drinks. Walking back to our hotel as the sun makes its way down, typical Palawan sites emerge. Kids are playing while motorbikes and tricycles take their places on the semi-paved roads.
It’s noisy but still perfectly fitting within the ambience and rhythm set back at Pristine Beach. Puerto Princessa made for a great beginning. If El Nido is better than this… My thoughts ran endlessly around that possibility that eventually came true. Summer vacation is just getting started and starting off with a bang, thanks to Puerto Princessa and this perfect atmosphere.
