Taking chances

“The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.” ~John Burroughs Skimboarder starts off fresh at sunrise in Dahican Beach, Mati, Davao Oriental.  The long beach strip, once unknown, is now haven for skimboarders and surfers.  Sunrise in this area most often looks like this on a glorious day.

“It is only when we are very happy that we can bear to gaze merrily upon the vast and limitless expanse of water, rolling on and on with such persistent, irritating monotony, to the accompaniment of our thoughts, whether grave or gay. When they are gay, the waves echo their gaiety; but when they are sad, then every breaker, as it rolls, seems to bring additional sadness, and to speak to us of hopelessness and of the pettiness of all our joys.” ~ Baroness Emma Orczy, a British novelist, playwright and artist of Hungarian origin.
