Roxas Boulevard and Manila Bay

Roxas Boulevard in Manila is famous because of a nice view of the sunset over Manila Bay everyday. I got the first 3 photos from the fb wall of Dr. Aileen Baviera, an academic from UP, posted today. Nice views from a chopper.

The Manila Yacht Club. Eileen was riding the 2nd chopper of the Philippine Navy.

The Navy headquarters at Manila Bay. It's small, and I think it's ugly too, compared to the many structures and buildings along the boulevard facing Manila Bay. There is a plan to lease or privatize this area, good move. The Navy can have a big space in Cavite, say at Sangley Point. Government can use the money, privatization proceeds, to modernize the AFP without raising taxes.

The 3 photos I took last August 26, 2013. I was on top of a pedestrian overpass at Roxas Blvd., not far from Luneta.

Nice, cool, windy day at Manila Bay.

There was a typhoon a few days before that, the waves brought tons of debris and solid wastes from the coastal areas of Cavite and Bataan. Some people are able to get some valuable things from those solid waste.
