These photos were taken by my sister, when she and her hubby visited our brother's grave and our family in Sta. Rita, Western, Samar. After the family gathering, they got a chance to tour around and visit some of the major tourist spot in Samar and Leyte province. Hopefully, we could able to visit there too and take vacation sometime next year so we can see it closely. According to my sister, it was a breathtaking views. I definite like it knowing I am a nature lover and a photohobbyist.
