One Hot Summer Day at Gumasa White Sand Beach

Beach Volleyball Court at Gumasa.
It's my long long time dream to step on the white sand of Gumasa Beach and to feel the healing power of the fine sand while in contact with our tired feet. 

I thought of not seeing "her" beauty in this year of snake, or apprehensive for another attempt, that might eventually become a failure, as what happened last time when I attended the Google Mindanao summit in General Santos City. That was because of my bucket's budget and available extra time.

Five years ago when I started yearning to see this priceless gem in the Southern Tip of Mindanao after reading some posts with beautiful photos displaying its beauty. From then on, I  kept on researching some blog posts about Gumasa Beaches in the blogosphere way back 2009, and finally that yearning in seeing "her" spectacular beauty had come to life last April this year.

White Sands especially in beaches is wonderfully cool underfoot and it is incredibly soft. This is one of our reasons in coming over.

Another reason aside from a therapeutic effect for our body especially the cool feeling underfoot is the beach photography. Try my new gears and practice on what I've learned from the Photography Workshop I've attended last time with Estan Cabigas as our speaker. Second was a getaway vacation with my family.
We endured the 10 hours of long travel because of our desire to see the white sand of Gumasa Beach and to have at least a family bonding away from home and also trained our kids on how to responsibly manage themselves while on travel via public transportation.  
Though that was a short and a hot summer vacation day,  my family and I enjoyed very much and we are looking forward to go back to this beautiful beach and will have another trip in the Southern Tip of the Philippines----the Gumasa White Sand Beach of Glan, Sarangani.

And we went home with a satisfied soul after we have had our short getaway vacation on one hot summer day but with a cool family bonding experience last April 2013, that makes it different and unforgettable experience in our life.
