Along Manila Bay

Along Manila Bay

The Bay walk, along Roxas Boulevard, is simultaneously relaxed and a hive of activity. Local children run, swim, and shout. Street vendors call for customers. Motorbikes, bicycles, and even a horse and cart wend their way along the pavement. All along the sea wall, friends and couples chat happily, the din of heavy traffic ever-present in the background.

But this is not what I remember, two months removed. I remember serenity. Look out to sea and the noise of the world dissipates, and all you hear are gentle waves and the sea breeze. The cacophony of humanity recedes; only beauty touches your senses. That is the power of sunset at Manila Bay.
