Ze473. (0a) the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, it was a good road down from Bolinao Town, there are a few resorts on the way, some are not cheap.
If one has the time, a little extra to spend there are many things to see in the Philippines. And if you have wheels, that makes it a bit easier. On the 2nd & 3rd of March hopped into the car and cruised around. I’m based at Olongapo City.
Ze474. (0b) the map to show you where the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse is.
Ze475. (0c) this is the description of the Bolinao Lighthouse.
Ze476. (0d) the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, it was a good road down from Bolinao Town, there are a few resorts on the way, and some are not cheap.
Ze477. (0d) here is a Google Earth map with the landmarks around the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse. If you look close a number of resort or hotels icons showed up all along the Cape Bolinao Coast.
Ze478. (0e) directly down from the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse seems to be a big resort.
Ze479. (0f) this is Bolinao Town, conveniently the tourist office at the entrance of the town and a big police station is next to it, left in this picture. But it was closed because it was a Sunday today.
Ze480. (0g) this is the Google Earth map of Bolinao Town and the points I visited.
Ze481. (0h) the area I call:”The pier area at the end of Don Alonzo Ponce St” in Bolinao Town.
Ze482. (0i) the area I call: ”The pier area and the end of Don Alonzo Ponce St” in Bolinao Town. That large building seems to be a hotel or Inn.
Ze483. (0j) often I use my Garmin Handheld GPS device; it has a Philippine road mad in it to verify where I am. In deed I am at the end of the Don Alonzo Ponce St” in Bolinao Town.
Ze484. (0k) this skin diver caught my attention; he is harvesting something from the bottom at the pier area at the end of Don Alonzo Ponce St. in Bolinao Town.
Ze485. (0l) close-up of this skin diver who caught my attention; he is harvesting something from the bottom at the pier area at the end of Don Alonzo Ponce St. in Bolinao Town.
Ze486. (0m) this is a close-up of the pier area at the end of Don Alonzo Ponce St. in Bolinao Town. I have moved to the ferry point landing to the fair size island next to Bolinao Town.
Ze487. (0n) left is one of the bigger islands in the Lingayen Gulf, most people are not aware that Lingayen Gulf has big islands besides the 100 Islands. We are at the ferry point to that island on the Bolinao Town side. In back are fish cages in the strait between Bolinao Town and that island and the Anda Island. Those fish cages have made Bolinao famous; they are raising the bangus (milkfish) there.
Ze488. (1a) this is the bridge to Anda Island in Lingayen Gulf; the real name of the island may be Cabarruyan Island. This actually was my first stop because I came from Alaminos.
Ze489. (1b) this is a Google Earth map Anda Island or Cabarruyan Island and the landmarks which I took pictures of.
Ze490. (1c) this is a look north from the Anda Bridge, we see the strait between the mainland, left and the island, right.
Ze491. (1d) the Anda Town Hall still has the Spanish designation.
Ze492. (1e) we are at the Anda Town Plaza and we see a most impressive tree and this Carabao Stature is also a little different than most Carabao Statures, of this most important animal, in the Philippines.
Ze493. (1f) what would life like today in the Philippines without the ready available bus services?
Ze494. (1g) Anda Town, like most other Philippine towns, has its market area. And I even see a tall and elder foreigner (Cano) in front of me.
Ze495. (1h) Anda Town, like most other Philippine towns, has its market area. This wet market area looks very clean and good organized to me.
Ze496. (1i) Anda Town, like most other Philippine towns, has its market area. This is the section I’m interested in, I’m a vegetable man.
Ze497. (1j) the Anda Town seems to have at least two inns; I drove inside this one and it looked like a k place to me.
Ze498. (1k) at the bottom of the Anda Island, at the end of the main island road is this pier, in the
distance one can see the 100 Islands.
Ze499. (1m) the 100 Islands zoomed in, I think that stack perhaps belongs already to that well known Sual Power Plant.
