Recently we gathered cacao pods from their trees in the barangay of Libertad here on Siargao Island. After opening the pods to collect the nibs inside we took advantage of the excellent weather yesterday to dry them in the sun to make tablea cacao tablets for the favourite Philippine chocolate drink tsokolate.
This Little Egret arrived at our boat landing exactly four in the afternoon everyday for week. Took some patience as they’re wary and spook easily but I finally got a passable shot.
We’d like to welcome all our new readers. Our aim is to share stories and photos about the people, places and wildlife of Siargao, our island home here in the Philippines. We warmly invite you to join us in this conversation about our favourite place. Cheers, Greg and the www.wildsiargao.com team
