Early through July this year, I’ve been thinking of what to do for my birthday. I wanted to go somewhere so that Coco can run and play freely. I saw in the Instagram of my girlfriend, Cams that she and her family went to a drive to this little quaint road in Rizal. I really wanted to go there. It is so beautiful. I didn’t know there is something like this here at my side of the world. But because my bestfriend, Seska invited me and Coco to go to Boracay with her, I didn’t push through with this plans anymore. Then Lockdown happened again so nothing happened.
Three months after, it is Jhe’s birthday and and community quarantine quite lenient now so I told him my plans. Few days before his birthday, we saw an announcement in Facebook that Sapinit Road’s grass area will be under rehabilitation, clean up and disinfection. So again I decided to find another destination for us to go to. We were about to drive that day, Jhe didn’t want to go to where I chose to go because it is too far. But he still continued to drive going to Rizal area. I thought we are still going to my second option. But lo and behold, after 1 and a half hours..
We were really in awe of its beauty. Coco told me he feels like he is in America. He really enjoyed the view going there too, as much as he enjoyed the greens. We were supposed to do a little picnic in one of the grassy areas, but it started to drizzle. So we just stayed inside the car and ate lunch. When the rain stopped, that’s when we finally took our photos.
I’m not sure how it is during weekends, but when we were there, it was a Wednesday. Aside from us, there were two other families who came and 2 couples riding a motorcycle.
What is nice about it is that, it is just a little more than an hour away from Metro Manila. No entrance fee, not even a parking fee. But you can have a bounty of nature in your minds and in your hearts after.
What can you do in Sapinit Road? Take lots of pictures. Walk around, jogging, biking and have a nice meal with your family – picnic style. Of course, enjoy the grove of pine trees and the nice weather.
Nope. You can’t do work from home there. No signal both Globe and Smart. Yikes.
But please do remember to take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing but footprints. CLAYGO. Clean as you GO. Take care of the grassy sides when you drive on it as you park. Remember that this is a private property and the owner is just sharing the lot to the us.
Photo Tip: Since we were there on a lunch time. I noticed that the shots that we took towards main property is quite gloomy even if it it quite sunny (after the rain), compare to the shots that we took coming from the entrance gate of the property. It is more alive and seems happier. So you might want to check on that.
