Great shot Helen! I used to buy banana chips and dessicated coconut from the Philippines. So I used to travel there often. I just can't remember how long it took me to go from Manila to Cebu or Manila to IloIlo. I think they were short hops of 1/2 hour. Then I would travel to Davao City on Mindinow. I think Davao City was a tourest destination as well. But, then Cebu was too. I'm afraid my memory fails me after all these years. I love the light captured in this shot of yours.

@Craig: Oh ... OK Craig ... I appreciate your tenacity. You have worn me down ... I'm quite weak really! ;-)

It is Boracay. Nice to meet another puzzler.

It is a beautiful and exotic place. I cannot get over how calm the open waters are!

Wow, this gives me the "blues" for sure. It's a great study in the subtleties of my favorite color. Thanks for this one. And aside from the color, this is a really nice photo of a sailboat in action.
