Photographer's Note

I found this photo as I was digging into my archive last night. Taken almost a year ago, these guys appear to be walking under a rainbow. On a low tide, we were strolling the low shore/banks, and it was quite fascinating to see observe marine life under this condition. We spent several hours here until a rainbow appeared prior to a brief shower.

A trip to Guiuan takes much doing. The town, located on a narrow peninsula that juts out of Samar like a tail, is approached by land in a round about way, involving a trip to Catbalogan on the west and a mountain crossing to Taft on the east coast, then a long trip south. The shortest land route would be through Basey, but the passage between Basey and Balangiga is nearly impassable. The more convenient trip is to start at Tacloban and take the ferry to Guiuan. The relative isolation of this town has helped preserve much of its heritage. The trip is well rewarded by the sight of a complex much intact, after many years of changing fortunes.
