Last week, my friends and I decided to go to Baranggay Day-as in Cordova to take a couple of photos of the ever-changing skyline of Cebu. I suggested that we take the ferry from Pier 3 to the Ouano Wharf instead of crossing the bridge to Mactan Island. I told them that it would be my first time and that I would really love to take photos of Cebu City’s waterfront. Thankfully, they all agreed.
A lot of locals prefer to take the ferry to the island not only because it allows them to enjoy the wonderful view of the Queen City of the South but also because its fast, reliable, and quite cheap. For the 15-minute trip, passengers only have to pay Php 15.00. Not bad, ei?
Anyway, we reached Baranggay Day-as in Cordova at around 4:30 in the afternoon. It was perfect because the sun was setting and the sea was very calm. Also, in just a couple of minutes, it would be completely dark and the city lights would surely be a sight to behold.
Late afternoon in Day-as, Cordova. Just lovely!

Around three minutes later, our ferry was there. Now, it was time to go up! See you later, Cebu City!
