[SkyWatch] Provincial backwater?

Or tropical paradise?

Last weekend, driving along a pretty country road in Oriental Mindoro (introduced here), it appeared as if pure fluffy clouds were reaching down to greet us warmly.

Mindoro, 2010

We reached a small bridge and I asked our driver to stop so we could momentarily relish the river scene.





It was a perfect weekend day for a riverside family picnic.


Pity we didn't have time to join them. It looked pretty idyllic to me.

Skywatch Friday and Sunday Bridges are the memes for this post.

That's a wonderful series of photos. It's too bad (for me) that the weather is so hot, because otherwise I love the tropics :) That first photo with the clouds really brought home the feel of Pacific tropical areas.
