Bancas…


The Philippine word for boat is banca. In a country made up of several thousand islands it is very likely to see one or two from time to time…whether being paddled through a parking lot of water craft off a beach…

or returning from a day at sea…

or watching these braves souls sail out to sea on such small craft…

or sitting on the sand waiting to return to use once the tide has come back…

these boats are the source of transportation on the water from one island to the other..

and can be quite colorful as well…

although, there are also some substitutes for the boats which may not go as far but can be more fun…

until next time…
