|Lago del Ray, CWC|
April 11, 2009
Who would miss going to CWC when you are in this part of the world? So, being our last day, we decided to make this day our CWC day.
From Sabang to Naga, CWC in Pili town is along the way. It is right smack in the middle of a field. You actually have to go inside a residential subdivision to get to this place.
We arrived CWC around lunchtime..so as expected on a Black Saturday, the place is packed! No available tables...the line for wakeboarding is likewise looongg!...so we decided to take a look around the place, take some photos before heading out to the newly opened Lago Del Ray in CWC.
Pretty much makes sense to have something like this...especially if they want to make CWC a family place. The kids and non-wakeboarders (is this the right term?) can hang out here.
Lago del Ray opened last Feb'09. It is an artificial freshwater lake with lots of inflatables to choose from. Kayaks are also available.

Good thing we found an available tent. So decided to grab it and ordered our late lunch. The sun was sooo hot! We decided to wait until around 3pm to take a dip. Gia, Kumareng Jet and I had a blast trying out the slide, the obstacle course and the water polo area.
We packed up at around 4:30pm. Head back to Naga City to check-in at Starview Hotel. A small business hotel that really impressed me. Imagine duvet covers, flat screen TV, cove lighting and jet showers! wooow! Its location is also ideal since it is just a walk away from a church, a convenience store, restaurants and fastfood chains. It is in the center of Naga City.

After the much needed bath, we went to the neighboring Biggs Diner---a resto that we found out is "BIG" in this side of Luzon. Decorated like a true American Diner with a sprinkle of Bicolano, the food also is very much American with a few Asian fares.

Woke up early to catch the English Mass at San Francisco Church. Then, proceeded to buy pasalubong before heading back home.
The drive took longer because we encountered heavy traffic at Sariaya and Candelaria towns. Made 4 pit stops: 1 to gas up, another 1 for a late lunch and the rest to answer the call of nature.
Arrived our home by 10pm.
Wow! I really made it! 880kms of driving by myself... with a navigator that is mostly asleep! Really enjoyed the rural scenery...too bad I did not have enough time to take photos.
CAMSUR is a must place. "One of those 100 Places to Visit Before... thingie". Will go back to try out wakeboarding...and visit more islands in Caramoan!..soon...soon...
