Save for the people in the background, there's three of us in the photo. Can you spot who's the third? This was taken in April of 2007 when we went on a sunset cruise along Manila Bay.
Sunsets at Manila Bay have long been regarded as one of the most beautiful. Given the right weather conditions, this is very true. A month ago I had the chance of driving along Roxas Boulevard but I found the baywalk quite dry, boring actually. I was reminded of the time when the seaside promenade was bustling with activity. With a number of establishments lined up then, it was once a happening place.
It was around this time when we boarded one of those ferries offering sunset cruises complete with food, drinks, and a live band for entertainment. I didn't know if pets were actually allowed on board or not but just the same I snuck in Kwittie Boy, who at the time was our only cat.
The baywalk was bustling with activity back in 2007. I think it all came to a halt in 2010 when a new mayor took over.
Aboard the ferry, where people can order food and drinks.
Band playing in the background. I felt sorry for them because no one was paying them any attention at all. But then how can you compete with a glorious sunset?
Hello, Kwittie Boy!
I realized we should take our cats out more often. Isn't he cute or what?
Fantastic natural warm lighting and perfectly calm waters.

Unfortunately this was as close as I could get with my 18-55mm lens. But you get the picture, right?
The afterglow, bathing everything in warm orange tones.
Except for that paraw ride in Boracay and that sunset cruise along Misibis Bay, I don't remember going on any other sunset cruise since, more so along Manila Bay. I should probably go on another one soon.
