Nagsasa Cove to Pundaquit boat ride, 2022-03-15
For this forum presentation I chose 3 images.
After I finished my hike to Nagsasa Cove I rented a boat to go to Pundaquit. On the ride to Pundaquit I took 55 pictures of the coastline. The pictures are presented alphabetically and in the order they were shot. These 55 images plus 4 sections of maps are in this Flickr album, and they are uploaded in high resolution:
A short version with 14 images was established in my Facebook account:
In the descriptions of the images are often references of serial numbers and how many pictures based on the pictures in the Flickr album, so bear with me!
3 images with descriptions:
U887. #00b this is one of 4 map pictures in this album, Nagsasa Cove to Pundaquit boat ride, 2022-03-15 so that you might orient yourself as to where the pictures were shot.
U888. #10 this is one of 15 shots of leaving Nagsasa Cove, numbered #01 to #15 and show the Nagsasa Cove, the northern coastal point we got to get around. On pic #8 we some the very low rocks and in picture # 10 Tabones Island comes into view.
U889. #34 this is one of 13 images of the rough coast between Anawangin Cove and Pundaquit Beach. Picture # 45 shows the minor beaches and coves, called Diego’s Cove and Agnain Cove. The pictures are numbered # 34 to # 46. In the picture #42 the smaller Capones Island, called Camara Island comes into view. Pictures #36 to #40 show the large rock island at the northern point of Anwangin Cove and several very low rocks coming out of the water and I watch with a little concern my boat and other boats going thru those low rock outcroppings.

Repair of links in the page about the Ipo and Angat Dams.
The repair also had to be done for the La Mesa Reservoir entry. All three dams are VERY IMPORTANT for the waters supply to Metro Manila. That was also a high priority for Gen MacArthur in WWII who sent his forces there to liberate and safeguard these dams. All three dams are covered in this Corregidor forum page, scroll down: corregidor.proboards.com/thread/1655/excursions-philippines?page=5 , scroll down
To stir up your interest to revisit that page I repost these 5 images about those dams.
Zc037. A WWII map about the seizure of the Ipo Dam from the above webpage: The Triumph in the Philippines.
Zc044. We got a view of the Ipo Dam after all while we are on our way from the gate to the Ipo Dam going to the Angat Dam; zoomed in.
Zc048. The Angat Dam and Hydro Power Plant 2018-02-27.
Zc062. This is a graphic showing the watershed areas that surround about 17 water dams and hydroelectric power plants. This information and image is posted at the visitor building near the viewing deck of the Angat Dam and Hydro Power Plant 2018-02-27.

Jazz: Has anyone ever tried finding Pantingan River massacre sites? I'm taking a little stroll over there sometime in the next week, in the trail past Liyang (I see a junction of a trail that might descend from the ridge to the 4th bend of the river)

California - Bob: I forgot to mention that I kind of stumbled here because I was interested in the progress of the Carpas-Botolan Road. You must be in good health with all the walking you've done. Again, I enjoyed your Journeys and thank you ALL for your service. Bob

California - Bob: Dear Mr. Welteke: Since you have trekked all around Botolan, Zambales "and more", it is time to mention that my (asawa) wife is from Botolan. I was there in the early 2000's, and I "do" plan to return once the virus calms down more. Salamut. Bob/Kano

fortman: I hope that this is the right thread. Does any one know how the 155m GPFs were moved on to the panama mounts? Were special ramps used or were they lifted on using a crane?

batteryboy: GPFs were mounted via ramps to the Panama Mounts. No need for cranes

fortman: Hi Batteryboy. Thanks for the feedback on the panama mounts. It is as I thought, but have never seen a photo of the ramps being used. Regards.
