So the end of week one is here. Over the last few days we have continued to dive three dives a day and even joined the locals in there fiesta - local saints day, which results in a national holiday and a very big party.
The resort was just over the road and a few of the guys being just the other side of a tree to it, it was decided that instead of lying in bed that was trembling across the floor to the bassline.... we might as well join them.
We were told by the crew at Sogod Bay that we would be more than welcome and we were, a table sorted out for us and all good parties have smoke and foam included!
Great night had by all but some a little worse for wear the next morning!
The end of the week saw everyone up bright and breezy ready for only two dives as after our morning dives it was off to pick up the 'spotters' to see if whale sharks could be found to snorkel with.
The waiting game for some and the anticipation was all a little bit to much and a little lay down was required, but they were all ready to spring into action at any noise made.
It was the end of the season and the last attempt of a tour to try and locate Whale Sharks so it was always going to be a slim chance and unfortunately on this occasion none were sighted
We have had the same guides all week - Pero and Dave... but on the last day no Pedro.. just what had we done to the poor lad?
In celebration of our last dinner the staff really pulled out all the stops with a traditional celebration meal of Lechon baboy. (Pig roast).. Now it has been said it was more of a celebration that we were leaving and not that they were sorry to see us go!
Thank you (Salamat)
To all the team at Sogod bay for your hospitality, helpfulness and for an unforgettable 1st week to our trip. We hope to see you all again soon
Now....on to Malapascua for our second weeks diving here in the Philippines
