#247 Life along the coast


When you live along the coast, you can fish, or you can fish, or you can fish. Not very creative, I know. But in Minagas Este in Buguey, the fisherfolk are a lot smarter.

They catch fish, shrimps, and crabs, but use floating cages to fatten them before they are brought to market. It's like making more seafood than what they caught. And those two dudes on the sailboat... they're transporting sand hauled from a nearby mining site. The sand will be used as landfill to reclaim land from the sea, it's like making more land than what they originally had. I told you they're smart. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: When you visit a place for the first time, pay attention to the local folks. They may just teach you a thing or two.)

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
