El Nido Escape: Shelter at Talindak Cottages7:56 PM
Maybe Nacpan and I were not meant to be that time. They say timing is everything. I enjoy falling in love with new places but I was more eager to meet Nacpan during our visit to El Nido. The strong drops of raining falling on the metal roof that Tuesday morning meant we have to stay indoors. We packed our bags and moved from Skyline Inn, a budget room smacked right in the middle of the town, to Talindak Cottages which was homey and a good choice if we wanted to stay indoors.

Kuya was kind enough to give us free coffee as we settled ourselves in the cottage balcony. It is a known fact that there is no electricity in El Nido from 6am to 2pm. We were there as early as 9am so we occupied ourselves with our own choice of reading. I have always believed that rain, coffee, and books were a good combination. Apparently it is better when you are facing the sea even if the waves appear deadly.

I took a nap when electricity was back and the rain started to fall again. I woke up at around four with the shore completely revealing itself and the rain stopping. J was in our balcony planning the week ahead. We took the chance to walk around the beach before the dark clouds looming would reach us.
