Dako Island

I was excited but was also mumbling prayers while our boat cruised from Guyam Island to our next stop: Dako Island. It really didn't help knowing that we were out in the open sea near the Philippine Deep. Haha! Scaredy-cat!

Dako Island is bigger than Guyam. Thus, the former's name literally means "big" in the dialect. One side of it has sudden drops with depths not safe for frolicking kids.

  1. Sometimes you don't know what you were missing if you dont turn to the other side...just like any argument, if you dont want to know where the other person is coming from - you will just end up frustrated. This is why DAKO was a good example of beauty just behind the bend. We were not ready for what was waiting at the other side when we walked, but extremely surprised that we did!
