Cape Bojeador Lighthouse & Kapurpurawan Rock Formations

Posted on Posted in Travel

So many places to explore and it is only day 2 of our Ilocos expedition. To start our day and make use of our idle time while waiting for the co-tourists, we had a quick stroll to take some snaps around the area of our meeting place. It is really refreshing to be in a foreign city. That’s why I love travelling because you get to witness locals say things differently and do things differently. A whole new experience of culture and meeting new people. After that brief exploration and contemplation, we made our way to Pagudpud!

Walking was an option but we were forced to walk because of traffic. I am not pleased..

A quick rest before climbing up the stairs to the lighthouse.

The lighthouse was first lit in March 30,1982. Isn’t it a beauty? I don’t about you but I’m fascinated. This is actually my first time to be this close to a lighthouse. Too bad we couldn’t get inside. I bet it has a breathtaking view upstairs.
