Yesterday, Sathurday mornig the boat, or let's call it a nutshell, I hired to take me to Abra arrived on time and the boarding with the bike was no problem. At the beginning the ride was smooth but got rougher the closer we got to Abra. Finally the waves where so high, we could not land or get off the boat, so we went all the way back. I sugested to dropp me off at Balatero from where a ferry leaves for Abra dailly, and of course I had to pay extra...

There is a ferry, daily at 10:15, which I missed of course, therefore I cycled in direction of Puero Galera (only 3 km :-) and luckily stumbled over the Fisherman's Cove hotel & dive.
The hotel, owned by Guiseppe an Italian, is located on a very pituresque, quiet spot and features also the best restaurant I had so far (pasta is al dente!).

So when Guiseppe tells me about tomorrows dive trip to Verde Island, one of the best dive spots of the Philippines, I could not resist and extended my stay until Thuesday or Wednesday.
I consider myself luckily stranded in another divers heaven.

Statistics: diving 14 (by tomorrow evening), cycling still zero :-)

(Still confident about the cycling, otherwise I should change the blog title and get rid of the bike ... :-)
