The 'bubwits' and Peñafrancia Resort

THE daughter, who lately began sounding like the feisty widow badgering the threatened judge, won out in the end. So yesterday morning, we motored to Peñafrancia Resort some four kilometers towards Mt. Isarog for a much-needed dip in the pool.

"We" did not include the two boys who not only had the advantage of an overnight swim at Nato beach during the Holy Week but are also preparing for the opening ceremonies of the summer basketball tournament in Grandview later in the day.

The resort, which had long been a fixture in Naga since my childhood, has two new big pools, both designed for kids and teenagers -- and of course, adults who can't swim:) They were tiled differently so that one had a continuously flowing blue Pacific waters, the other green Mediterranean.

They are surrounded by strategically located cottages accessible by car (particularly the ones overlooking the pools), so that one can park it just beside your chosen cottage. Entrance is P80 for adults, P50 for children above 3 years old; cottage rental is P200 (negotiable).

The hands-down scene-stealer yesterday were my two "bubwits," which is how we call Patricia Anne aka Nokie and Ophelia Bianca aka Buddy. The two pictures here give you an idea why, and how refreshing cool waters of a mountain resort can be in the hottest of recent summers.
