Not Too Far Zamboanga

ZaNorte is for Zamboanga del Norte

I took these photos on my first trip to Zamboanga via the lone Philippine Airlines flight to Dipolog City. I went there with Dakak Beach Resort in mind. Only then that I discovered that Dakak is geographically located in Dapitan City next to Dipolog. I realised that contrary to that old folk song about describing it as far Zamboanga, by air the travel is only an hour. And contrary to what I read in the papers and watch on television and read in the net, the place is pretty much safe and enjoyable place to stay as a respite. And there's much more to relish in Zamboanga del Norte beyond Dakak.

Very impressive shot! It really exudes a great, grand and happy celebration!!! You caught the right "moment"!

"Wonderfully made" is just apt as a title!
