Playa Azalea is an exclusive resort that only residential homeowners can enjoy their facilities. A friend of mine owns a property here so I got the chance to visit it and experienced what it’s like to live in a place like this, so peaceful, very relaxing, and away from the busy streets of Davao.
This place is really beautiful. If I live here, I would be spending most of my time lounging and enjoying the sound of the waves rushing in to shore. But I bet to own a property here is quite expensive. And using their facilities are not free. Like if you want to swim in the pool, you need to pay P200 per person. Kids under 3 are free of charge. But I tell ya, it’s worth it, because their pool is immaculately clean, it’s not Chlorinated, and it taste wonderful! Charging 200 is just enough to keep it clean for all swimmers. They have 2 pools. The big pool(first photo) and the kids pool(second photo). My son had a great time swimming here, and I thought he would never stop!

The overlooking beach.
And they also have a playground whenever the kids will get bored from swimming.
By the way, it is okay to bring your own food, but it is not allowed to eat it in the Canopy cottages. You can only eat your food at the beach area where the cottages are free of charge. The canopy cottages by the pool cost P600 pesos to rent it all day, which is okay cause it is huge and can hold up to 2 family.
Last Summer August 2012, hubby and I celebrated our 5th year of togetherness in Virginia Beach, again! It was our second time to visit the place, and I don’t think I could get enough of it. Living far from the beach makes one crave for the beach. I was craving for a beach experience alright, and its the only time that I can fulfill this crave. Since Virginia Beach is the closest beach that we find nice, we drove down there for 8 hours just to feel the sand, taste the ocean water, and inhale fresh breeze from the ocean. It was wonderful! If you live far from any sea water, you will understand the feeling. But I got the feeling that this would be the last to visit the pretty beach of Virginia, for hubby was not happy of our experienced there last Summer.
Anyway, I would like to share to you guys some of the photos I took of Virginia Beach.Virginia Beach in the morningFeeling the sands under my feet was heaven! Kids dig in the sands right away with their beach toys. Father and Son building their sand castle.

There you go, I hope you enjoyed looking at my photos. I will share some more later.

Photos below were taken on our last day in Virginia Beach. It was such a nice day to go swimming, but we need to pack our things to head back to our daily routines. Our 3 days vacation here last summer 2011 was so awesome, and was so quick. There was so much things to do, and 3 days was not enough.
Before we head to our next destination, we strike a pose first at the statue of King Neptune. If you visit Virginia Beach, you will never miss this 34-feet Bronze Sculpture, that sits in the middle of the beach on the Boardwalk, at 31st Street by the Hilton Hotel, which is close to our Hotel. It was build on May 10, 2005, in honor of the Neptune Festival that is held every September. The creatures around King Neptune shows the wonders hidden beneath the waves., and that stern look shows that he is not entirely pleased with the ecologically poor use of his seas, according to Paul Di Pasquale who sculpted this piece. He sure look so magnificent and powerful. I hope this statue will remind everyone to take care of our water.
And here I am looking so tan, sitting pretty in one of the benches by the boardwalk, while waiting for my men to finish surveying this majestic sculpture.
