{Day 13: Issue a Public Apology}

Hello everyone!  For today's  Story of My Life challenge, I'd like to issue a public apology for spending the entire month of May talking about myself. To make up for this, I'm going to share an interesting find during a walk in the town of Coron, Palawan, where I currently am. 

Hotel Entrance
After touring around to look for a place that we can call home in this seemingly growing popular town tourism-wise, I chanced upon this haven at the corner of a busy market place while walking. It stood out immediately among the clustered small stores and cramped pension houses. 

Nestled in a quiet and narrow street, the clay tiled roof of this quaint French Mediterranean resort caught my eye. I found myself in front of the entrance staring at this imposing structure that looked out of place from its neighboring fishing town. 

A French gentleman on his mobile phone greeted us, "Please come inside, don't be shy."  I made my way inside the lobby for an afternoon coffee at the courtyard.

Though we're not staying there, I'm happy to have found this place.
Happy Monday!
Love & light,

{P.S. Another apology: Please excuse my photo resolution. I did not bring my big camera during this trip because it was too heavy. My small digital camera volunteered to take its place and carry out the job.}
