Of all our Boracay trips, we felt that our last Boracay trip was the best. Our first day in Boracay went well- we were able to explore DSB, rest, swim, walk, have dinner and have our night swimming 🙂 For day 2, of course, we knew that we had to be productive also. As early as 4am, I was up and we prepared, sorted, and packed the clothes back in the luggages for our early check out at 11am.
The pool was inviting me to have my morning swim but we decided to have our breakfast first before having our planned activities. It’s a good thing that Discovery Shores offer their breakfast buffet for their guests at 6am.
After breakfast, we headed to the beachbeds in the beachfront to relax for a while and to have a quick morning swim.
After the morning swim, we headed back to the room to get ready for our Mermaid Photo Op.
Our scheduled meet-up was 9 am and we were advised to go there 30 minutes before. I thought it was just a short walk , but I was wrong. Shane was feeling lazy at that time to walk and was irritated at the same time because of the heat. While we were walking along White Beach, we passed by Estacio Uno. I really missed the seaside suite that we have stayed in last summer and I promised myself that we will definitely go back.
Finally, we reached Fisheye Divers beside Starbucks Coffee to meet the mermaid swimming instructor. After signing the agreement, choosing and fitting our tails, we had our photoshoot.
After the photoshoot, we fixed our things and checked out of DSB. The concierge service arranged for our private tricycle going to Tirta Spa for my Anti-time treatment.
After the treatment, I felt rejuvenated and because I just wanted to have that unique glow in my skin for the rest of the day, I decided not to take a shower or have an afternoon and midnight swim. We went back to DSB and they dropped us to True Home Hotel for free. (The only trouble we had was waiting for almost an hour because the DSB staff brought our luggages in the airport by mistake).
After checking in, we just decided to put our luggages in the room, let our daughter have her afternoon swim and catch the beautiful sunset in the beachfront.
Because it was getting dark, we walked from Station 1 to the D’Mall to find an inexpensive restaurant. Luckily, there was a vacant table and chairs for us in SMOKE Restaurant! (This is one of my favorite restaurants in Boracay because the foods are reasonably priced and best of all– delicious!)
After dinner, we bought some “pasalubongs” like ref magnets, pair of earrings and bracelets. We also went to the grocery store to buy coffee and chips.
After the long walk back to True Home Hotel, we decided to sleep early for another set of activities the following day. We joined Shane in the living room because the aircon in our bedroom wasn’t working 😦
We had a lot of activities, but we were not exhausted– it was indeed a PRODUCTIVE DAY!
