As we embark on our Northern Sierra Madre Natural Park Adventure Trip, an Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone was reported to be developing somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Initially, the boat we were taking should have left Port of San Vicente in Sta. Ana, Cagayan at 2AM. But the winds began to sweep the area, threatening our trip and further delaying our adventures. By 3AM, the wind calmed down and so we left San Vicente. As M/B King Gerald was slowly cruising on a surprisingly serene Pacific Ocean, I was anticipating a beautiful sunrise to greet us on our way. And it happened! Truth to be told, it was my first time to witness a sunrise in the Pacific.
