Photos – The Early Years – III

A few more early beauties – compliments of cousin Dinny Bilbao:

Anchors away and off they go boating on the magestic Sulu to destinations unknown…

  1. Thank you Dinny for the info. on pumpboat ‘Marty.’

    It looked vaguely familiar at first glance—what with its distinctive marine blue and red-strip paint that atypically covered even the ‘katig’ (most others do not have the ‘katig’ painted)—then it all came back when you mentioned it. Ah, the memories it evokes of many an excursion to Ubong, and, more poignantly, of its beaming with pride young skipper, who I know is smiling appreciatively from heaven…
