Rompeolas: Where the Waves Cavort

Let’s spend an afternoon, and perhaps wait for the sun set, at the Rompeolas of Sorsogon city. Rompeolas is a Spanish word, roughly translated to “where the waves cavort.” This used to be a port where inter-island ships dock now re-designed and converted to a whole new facilty that will cater to tourists, local and itinerants. Blog visitors are most welcome to help us translate the word.

The place offers beautiful sunset views, fresh air and a great space to jog and walk after a hard days work. Already, locals have integrated into their lives a regular visit here. On weekends, it is full of Sorsogon denizens, young and old, or families with toddlers in tow. (Will post more info and pics, later.)

These photos by our nephew Cid and thanks to my sister who will soon join our blogging team.

    Hi, Janice,

    That’s what I need. Appreciate and thanks for the info. The Philippines had been under 400 years of Spanish rule, hence the influence and the enrichment of culture, including on the Bicol language which has many Spanish words and terms.

    In the process of making a reply, I inadvertently pressed the delete option. No way I can re-post the comment but only thru this way. My apologies. (Good enough, messages are also recorded and streams thru my email):

    Postcards from Wildwood has left a new comment on your post “Rompeolas: Where the Waves Cavort”:

    It’s a beautiful place, Japa, beautifully captured. Rompeolas means breakwater, coming from romper (to break) and olas (waves). But ‘where the waves cavort’ sounds so much more poetic!
