|Our goal is the edge near the horizon!|
|One hour up, still a long way to go!|
|The way back!|

While Pinky tried to take snaps of the faint hint of the windmills, something caught my eye in the oposite direction. Beyond the coconut trees, which was way behind our backs while looking into the water, was another body of water...a lagoon. And unlike the expected flora of the coastal landscape we were immersed in, this one had aquatic plants...coastal wetland! It had cattail (Typha angustifolia) populations which I see mostly in inland freshwater ponds. Quite a surprise for me. It seems Ilocos never runs out of things to discover!
