What did I do on New Years Eve! I decided to hop on to an island and welcome the new year with a fresh perspective. I really wanted to fully embrace and enjoy the simple truths and joys of life, I began my day bright and early with a breakfast at Cafe Loka. The cafe is located at the base of Cloud 9 which is the premiere surfing spot on the island.
A brought my book and sketch pad and began sketching and really imbibing the island lifestyle. I thought to myself I really can see myself here. I totally loved being surrounded by greens and so much clean air. After breakfast I decided walk on the boardwalk and onto the viewing platform which is really quite a sight to see. There I sat still and caught some amazing views of the gorgeous waves which attracted all these surfers from all over the world. I must have stayed there for hours. Before I knew it was already time to get ready for our New Years eve dinner which was going to be held in Bayud.
Nino and his chef Brother Rain prepared an island feast complete with a beautiful organic lechon which was absolutely superb. We ate and danced and enjoyed and although the rains began to pour down it stopped just in time for the countdown. There we had fireworks ushering the new year! I knew it was a great party as I don’t have any photos after dinner. LOL! Truly the best way to start the year.
