Beautiful rock

This is where my husband and I were 'marooned' during the past four days: the gorgeous Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa. The resort opened only in 2009 and is perched on a tiny, rocky island off the bigger island of Marinduque, a province south of Manila located between Tayabas Bay and the Sibuyan Sea. This photo hardly does Bellarocca justice but it is my only photo of the whole island. However, I did take lots of pictures at the resort, so we will be spending the next few days there. BELLAROCCA SERIES #1

Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa



Thank you to all those who still visited and left comments on my blog during the days that we were away. I also hope that all our blogger friends in Europe are home safe and sound. The resort had no newspapers and we do not watch TV, and though it has internet connection, we didn't bring a laptop so I only got to read about Eyjafjallajokull when we got back.

If you have to be marooned, this looks like the place to be.

Oh, I feel so sorry for you, marooned on that desolate island, surrounded by nothing but water! :-))

I'll bet you had a blast! Looking forward to many more photos!

Looks like "a psalm" to me.


Luckily returned "in time" from Germany, as it would have been very difficult now. Yet, over here in Greece, media and weathermen say that the cloud won't reach - for now. Speaking of clouds, while being away, most of the palm trees where cut, as small green bugs arrived with the last dust cloud from Africa, said to have eaten the branches and more.
Wishing you a wonderful start into the new week, filled with only clean and fresh air.

This looks like what we would call a "destination resort." I look forward to more photos during the coming days.

It looks very small - how fun! But I'm feeling envious, I have no vacation planned for a while.

Feels like Europe or some exotic island. I can't recall which blogger (must've been Ferdz/Ironwulf) who blogged about this.

That sounds like a luxurious place to visit. I hope you're all refreshed, buffed, polished and ready to tackle the metropolitan living again.

Nice place to be marooned! Happy holidays!
