A boat ride is one way in getting to the city of Masbate and the island province of Masbate from the Bicol peninsula. The choppy trip of about fifty miles traverses the seas in the vicinity of Ticao Pass and Masbate Pass.
One gets treated to views of wide expanse of sea, islands and mountains on the way.
But very interesting and always a common sight, not only in the region but in many parts of the country as well, are houses on stilts not on the edge of the bay but literally built on the waters. During high tide and big waves, these structures are precariously in danger.
Can you imagine sleeping at night and hearing the gentle rush of waves below?
