January 17, 2006-Subic Bay

Olongapo street scene

It seems like some things about Olongapo just never change.

We're back in Olongapo, the town outside of the Subic Bay Free Port Zone (used to be the Navy Base), on Luzon Island, in the Philippines.

Just like when we were here a couple of years ago, and just exactly like when I was first here in 1971, courtesy of the USN, it's full of street vendors, jeepneys, and pretty girls.

We're doing some boat projects, waiting for parts, and finding that we like Subic Bay, more this time than last time.


The weather is cooler in January than May, we've had some good sailing around the bay, we're meeting other cruisers, and generally having a good time.

If we get serious about this blog thing, maybe we'll write a bit more of a report.

Meanwhile, we've got an appointment with a San Miguel beer, or three.

Fred & Judy, SV Wings, Olongapo
