Shit naman talaga: Shit sa hirap pumunta pero Shit din sa Ganda.Sasadyain mo talaga at paghihirapan.And I guess that makes it sweeter.Yun nga lang,like what we did,mag-aala-SURVIVOR ka talaga.
The scary part this time came as we approached the opening of the river to Vinzons.A couple of kilometers before its mouth,we noticed the big waves swelling and turning into surf.Nervous moments ----and it started to rain again(Sinu ba me balat samin?).Imagine the waves coming from behind this time.Two fishing boats the same size with our ride joined us.All thre (including ours) were meters away from each other and approaching the river opening in a formation as if we were set for a military attack or something.From blue,the water was noticeably brownish which means the energy of the big waves from the open sea is already pushing against the shallower sea floor.
I saw a big wave coming from the open sea about to hit us.Good thing Kuya Jovy (the assistant was again quick to jump from one side of the boat to the other side where the big waves is approaching and stood on the side floater (katig).If not for the quick decision,we would have been topped sidewards.All of us were mad.The three of us boys shouted "kuya!anung ginagawa mo! (What are you doing!).He said,we will be caught by the surf.But what's with the poor timing? We successfully made the turn after a couple more waves.We went around farther left of the river's opening where the surf are relatively smaller.
The experience served as icing in the cake.The "sugal buhay" experience completed and us feeling immortal.My friends told me "Ton,next na gala natin wag munang island".
They were traumatized!lol
