Morion's PhotoTravel Diaries| Eskapo to Socorro, Surigao del Norte

"the weather is good, the sea breeze invites me to explore this interesting island town"

Socorro is one of the municipalities of Surigao del Norte province and neighboring island of Siargao. It covers the whole island of Bucas Grande and surrounding islets. Three to four hours passenger boat travel from Surigao City Boulevard and less than an hour if from Dapa Port of Siargao Island. The Island town is known for its Sohoton's "swim with majestic groups of sting-less jellyfish", caves, white sand  beaches, vast mangrove forests and amazing rocks formations. 
Going to the Island, we decided to hire a motorized banka at Dapa Port that will take us to the Island - "dahil ang next scheduled trip ng passenger boat bound to Socorro ay 4:00 pm pa so baka gabihin kami pa-balik ng Siargao kung alas-kwatro pa aalis".
We expected smooth sea travel since the weather is good. Unluckily, 30 minutes before arrival at Port of Socorro, strong huge waves struck us! Thanks God, after all the shouts of my lady colleague (asking for God's help :)), we reached the Port area. We arrived at around 2:00 pm- and no time to waste, hired a tricycle to roam around the town.

Morion's PhotoGallery 101| Amazing Pineapple of Del Carmen, Siargao Islands

Is Pineapple plant with multi-headed fruit common or this was just my first time to see this kind? These Photographs were taken in Bo. Quezon, Del Carmen- Siargao Islands on June 14, 2012. I've posted one in my facebook wall and got comments usually  like this  "Hawaian ba yan?". Even the owner doesn't know the variety and she denied propagating "crossbreed". "Common or local variety man dong ang gitanum nako", she said in local dialect and doesn't know why her two pineapple plants come-up with multi-headed fruits.
