Return to Eden

Last month, Danny and I decided to visit our favourite place in Davao City, the Eden Nature Park ResortΒ as a form of relaxation and retreat from our hectic and busy life in the city. Eden is a place very similar to Baguio City. It has a cool climate, lots of pine trees, and beautiful surroundings. Taken from their website:

Peace, serenity, bonding and celebration amongst the splendour of creation.

Eden is a home to vast gardens of herbs and organic vegetables, lush field of exotic and tropical foliage, acres of lofty pines and fruit trees, and showcases of exotic and indigenous creatures at the Deer Park and Bird Walk.

After having our breakfast, Danny and I decided to walk around and take pictures. Everything around Eden is picture perfect. So if you visit there, be sure to bring a camera with you. You’ll miss half of your stay there if you don’t bring one. πŸ˜€ I want to share with you some of the photos we took. I hope you’ll enjoy them. πŸ™‚

On the way to Prayer Garden, we were greeted by a group of mouse deer. πŸ™‚ They look so adorable. πŸ™‚

Then we headed to the Prayer Garden. Here are some of the photos we took from there. As always, the garden looks so, so lovely with all the flowers around. πŸ™‚ Get ready for flower photos everyone. πŸ™‚

Danny knows that I love flowers very much. He knew exactly what was on my mind: to have my photo of me taken with the flowers. πŸ˜› He was kind enough to be the “photographer” and me as the “subject”. πŸ˜€ I love him so much! πŸ˜€

Then we headed next to the Amphitheatre. πŸ™‚ It’s beautiful as always with all the trees and flowers around it. πŸ™‚

After the Prayer Garden, we just strolled and took more photos. Both me and Danny enjoying walking.

We also gave a visit to our camp site last year.

It’s so nostalgic walking around. We have been coming to this place since 2002. But we never get tired going back. πŸ™‚ After taking strolls, we decided to go back to our room to take a rest. πŸ™‚

We were so happy to learn that we were given this room because this was the same room that we had during our honeymoon. Very, very memorable. πŸ˜€

We really love this room. πŸ™‚ We can always relax in here. πŸ™‚ I can sleep here the whole day! I love to wake up with the nature. πŸ™‚ Danny enjoys listening to the birds and the gentle breeze. πŸ™‚ Ah, photos cannot do justice of how nice this place is. πŸ™‚

I went outside the room to enjoy the surroundings when I found this lovely conifer lying around. πŸ™‚

Then I gathered all sorts of leaves, pine needles, twigs and everything. They give a rustic feeling. πŸ™‚ I love them. πŸ™‚

After getting the rest we needed, we then decided have a little snack and strolled some more. πŸ™‚ There are still lots of nice places to discover and photos to be pictured. πŸ™‚

Here are some of our photos from our random walks. πŸ™‚

Our last stop was at the gazebo open field. πŸ™‚ We love that place because it’s so cool and windy there, perfect for meditation, relaxation and even recreation. πŸ™‚

The field had a very lovely gazebo. πŸ™‚

And a very nice view that I can’t help taking a picture of my hubby, Danny there. πŸ™‚

Since the place was wide and open, Danny and I decided to play badminton. πŸ˜€ It was quite a long time since we played this game together. πŸ™‚

And we decided to go home after the game. πŸ™‚ We really had a wonderful time at Eden. πŸ™‚ We wouldn’t get tired coming back to this place. πŸ˜‰

We really look forward to return to Eden…I hope later? πŸ˜‰
