Surip Mountain Beach Resort: Tips and Trips!

All photos are taken by Jenny. These are her pictorial episodes of her travel adventures. I’ve just discovered this blog. It is sure to be a favorite for those of us who enjoy the outdoors and God’s creation around the world.

My Wander Hub

Alaminos, Pangasinan in the Philippines is known for its One Hundred Islands where many tourists visit the place and experience ISLAND HOPPING. You can explore the islands by riding a boat and feel the ambiance of seawater, caves and trees.


These are the boats going to the different islands.


Those mountains you can view at this picture are the islands I am referring to.

Our family dropped by the Hundred Islands for a short span of time because our real destination is on the white beach at Surip Mountain Beach Resort at Bani, Pangasinan.

If you are from the city of Manila, it is a 6 hour-drive (if there is no traffic). You need a private vehicle going to the resort because it is far from…

In Praise Of Decay (and against plastic)

Thank you for a thought-provoking sonnet. God gave us a planet of beauty to inhabit and it is taken for granted by uncaring, unfeeling people, who pass those negative qualities on to their progeny. If people are going to go hiking/camping, biking, etc., they should carry trash bags with them and carry them back to a place where they can be properly disposed of.

I walk each morning in some woodland near my home and especially savour in this late autumn, early winter season, the damp carpet of fallen leaves, now decaying and forming  rich mulch that will feed the soil for future growth. Even in their decay, losing edge and shape, melding and blending together there is in this carpet of leaves, a kind of grace and beauty. The other morning though, these meditations were interrupted by a sudden intrusion. There amongst the gold and mottled leaf mould, like some harsh alien excrescence, was a discarded plastic bag. It was totally out of place and told its own tale of indifference and carelessness; not just the carelessness of the person that dropped it, but the carelessness of the culture that produced it. The trees shed their leaves, and in that fall and letting go  achieve…

HOW TO Indent in your blog posts.

Thank you, Ronovan. I have often lamented not being able to indent in WP. If I had thought about it, though, it makes sense. Just add spaces. Oh, yeah! Re: Amber Wake: I have been reading it aloud to my husband. We are on ch. 5 and really enjoying the book. When finished I will post a review on my WP site and on Amazon.


As some of you may have noticed, I have begun a new feature here on RW called Ask Ronovan. You can ask anything. Normally I wait a couple of weeks and put out the answers on a Sunday with the next Ask Ronovan post. However, a question was asked I believe needs answering now. Do you wonder how to indent in your blogs?

Here is the request:

Your Question for Ronovan: Hi Ronovan

Can you point me in the write direction for html code to align my acrostic poem below?

Can’t align in WordPress.

I’m not including the poem here but I’ll create one that will do much the same.
