It was my first time at Island Cove and thanks to Yehey and Island Cove for this. 🙂 Island Cove is located at Cavite and the place has become a venue for the ala Amazing Race dubbed by Yehey as Detour: Island Cove Adventure.
I was not really that physically prepared to participate in an event filled with adrenaline rush to think that I just had only a few hours of sleep. I’m estimating that I only had 2 and a half hours of sleep. I can’t believe myself that I was still able to run and hop around Island Cove.
We finished the race in a span of 1 hour and 7 minutes. The hardest part of the race is where we should find a mask and it’s other half. We spent a long time on it hopping from one pavillion to another and still, we could not find the other half of the mask. Still, we proceeded to the next stop since we’ve already looked at every corner of the pavillion.
Letting us feed the monkeys in the morning seemed to be a trick for us since when the time came for us to feed the monkeys and take a picture of a monkey eating a banana most of them are full. It’s a good thing though that there’s one hungry monkey who ate the banana. 😀
Anyway, my favorite part in the tour is the Animal Island where I was able to take photos and I was able to test the zoom of Canon SX110is (10x optical zoom yay!). We saw a cassowary there and one of the zookeepers showed to us the eggs of an ostrich and a cassowary (egg is color green). 😀 And also getting to take photos at the Fishing Village is a really great experience. 🙂
