We arrived at Davao at exactly 9pm and shortly after, we joined the Mt. Apo climber’s party bash. Then at 230am, we took the Hinatuan-bound bus at Ecoland Terminal. It was already noontime when we reached Hinatuan the following day. At the Hinatuan terminal we chartered a habalhabal to Enchanted River; it took us nearly 30 minutes and wilder than our prior Tinuy-an falls ride.
This part of Surigao del Sur was missed during our Butuan-Bislig-Davao trip.
We had bliss at Enchanted River where we lingered until 4pm. We witnessed the fish feeding but the rain however foiled the clear view.
The Agaton storm slowly made its way with relentless downpour but we managed to cross the Sibadan Fish Cage for our overnight stay.
With the storm, we were restrained in our rooms. As we were on stilts, we can feel the wave underneath and its swayish beat. Before the night progresses, a fever caught me and I was obliged to retire. I felt helpless as I trembled with the rocking waves getting intense. I prayed that the fever be gone soon. The hard part of travelling took its toll – unwanted illness, far from home and in the middle of a storm.
