Blue waters of Samal Island

We hopped in to our banca one summer day sometime in 2005 or 2006 and toured around the Talikud Island beside Samal Island in Davao. It was an enjoyable trip to the island which had some white beaches. In this photo is captured the beautiful blue waters below the blue skies while we hopped from island to island enjoying the serene sea aboard our banca. This reminds me of the song:

What A Wonderful World

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
    They're really saying I love you.

    I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll never know
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Water Droplets On Pink Dendrobium Orchid

Dainty pink dendrobium orchid with water droplets after the nights rain, was beautifully captured in this photo by my husband. This lovely bloom was also from my small collection of orchids from my small garden in Davao City.

Dendrobium is a huge genus of orchids. It is said to have about 1,200 species today.

This particular species is easy to grow and blooms well, several times throughout the year. What more, the flowers are long-lasting.
