The water is not too cold but just about right for bathing. We hanged out at the beach for a while, enjoyed the ocean and the magnificent scenery. We walked around and also got a few sea shells. We left Panglao island just before lunchtime to start our hunt for the famous Chocolate Hills.
We waited for a jeepney at one of the junctions but we haven't seen much vehicle passing by. Maybe because it's still too early. Two motorbikes (which is a common mode of transport here by the way) passed by and asked us where we're heading
From Panglao island we headed back to the main Bohol island. We took a mini bus that will take us to the middle of the island to a town called Carmen where the famous chocolate hills is located. It's a long road trip of more than two hours before we finally get there. Again, we had to take a motorbike to take us to the viewing deck. After several steps up the viewing point, we finally arrived. Ahhh...it's BREATHTAKING ...what more can I say. Another of nature's wonders. Kix and I stayed there for a while to enjoy this wonderful scenery. It's one of a kind, where else in the world can you find a set of hills (like giant hershey's chocolate kisses) so close to each other? it's phenomenal. While waiting over there, we suddenly heard hillsong music being played...where is it coming from? So we walked around to look for it and there is this girl on the photo stand playing her stereo. We started chatting with her and we found out that she's a Christian. We ended up praying for her as she represents the youth of Bohol.
Now, we're heading back to Tagbilaran port for a late afternoon journey to another big island called Cebu.
