Day at the beach

Duka Bay is a gorgeous resort with fine white sand and clear water. It’s a bit of a drive from the city of Cagayan de Oro, but there are accommodations on offer on the main resort for long distance travellers who want to enjoy this paradise. Here’s a short video of us frolicking.

Swimming with the whalesharks in the Philippines

One of the things we really enjoyed in the Philippines was our Whaleshark adventure. It was a sunny, yet windy day and the sea was a bit rough. My daughter wasn’t a very confident swimmer but she still donned the lifejacket and went into the water. You can see us at 1:24 where we were…

Repelling Cats from the garden

I love mucking about in my garden, I have edible plants out there and I would really like them to stay safe for consumption. Plus, I have a lot of small birds visiting my garden. And the one thing that really annoys me are the neighbour’s cat fouling. My hubby has had enough picking up…
