Calaguas Do-Over: Wet and Wild Weekend

Calaguas Do-Over by chasing jayce

When I say wet, I mean rain and  when I say wild I mean wind.  Yup, my Calaguas do-over had mostly been composed of raging rains and winds, with approximately 8 hours of sunshine. The rain started to torment us the moment we changed into our shorts and stepped out of the office…
