Peace, love, sandy feet

Virgin Island in Bantayan, Cebu "If there is a heaven for me,
I'm sure it has a beach attached to it."
~Jimmy Buffett, American singer-songwriter

CITY DAILY PHOTO THEME DAY: CELEBRATING SUMMER • In an archipelago composed of more than 7,000 islands, summer isn't complete without a trip to the beach. Manila no longer has a beach—when our parents were young, it did—so we have to travel a few hours to get to one. This is the beach of the tiny and undeveloped Virgin Island just off Bantayan Island in the island province of Cebu.

Did not know there were 7,000 islands. Wow! Did not know Manila did not still have a beach. Wow!

We learn so much on these blogs. I'm ready to visit the beach, now! Make room for all of your commenters today. We'd all love to be there!

Beautiful! That sand looks like it would be great fun to walk barefoot in.

the good thing about tropical countries like PI is that it's almost summer the whole year round.

A lot--maybe even most--of Virginians would agree with you even though we're not exactly an island. :-)

Hartford is about one hour from ocean beaches, so around here most people who want to swim go to swimming pools or small lakes.

You like ferris wheels? I like to photograph them but not ride them. I don't like heights, so they make me a bit dizzy!

beach, water, sky. It doesn't get more relaxed than that.

I so agree Hilda, you cannot go past the beach for a true summer experience! Beautiful scene.
