Olivia popped out to Cagsawa this morning to check on what's been done for the 200th anniversary of the big blow. They were working on this area when Jim and Olive stayed there last May, it had fallen into ruin but now looks great with a catering area over the old swimming pools and a very expensive looking bar up on the left, though probably way cheaper than any place in Australia.
Here Olive sits outside that area now called the Patio de Cagsawa, the row of traders that were here are gone now and it does give the place a fresh open look. It's outside the proper ruins area so there's more freedom out here, alcohol is allowed.
A lovely though ever so slightly tilted shot.
Mayon has been steaming for as long as history recalls.
A few wisps of cloud, an hour later Mayon was covered, I'm glad Olive went fairly early when the light was good.
