Boracay, Philippines [Part 2]

Is ^that^ paradise or what?! I cannot get over the beautiful, clear water! During our time in Boracay we took a boat ride around the island (it's a tiny island) and to a couple even smaller nearby islands. We stopped a beach, jumped off some cliffs, swam in a cove and did a bit of snorkeling. Lucy actually slept most of the first boat trip we did, so we did it again another day. Only one person can snorkel at a time or jump off things, etc when you've got a baby! Plus, it was just fun. 
There's 3 diving boards there-I started on the shorter one and worked my way up with Duke's encouragement. And then I did it like 3 more times! Scared me every single time. It was 10 meters which is like 33 ft. Not too shabby.

I don't think I mentioned it in my last post-but we stayed on White Beach-Station 3 and this was our hotel above. Steal of a deal I tell ya! We loved it.
Lucy sleeping..again. She basically missed half the vacation ;)
buried lucy in the sand. I think she liked it.
breakfast every morning. Plus an omlette. Take me back to all the fruit!!!
I have a serious thing for palm trees.
Also- fresh, yummy coconut water. I am a fan.
I finally decided hair pulled back in a braid is the way to go on beach days. It might be because i'm a little obsessed with braids lately. It's mostly Barefoot Blonde's fault (the blogger). She makes me want braids all day everyday!!
Swooning over those palm trees. One more Boracay post to come!
