A Surprise Day Trip To Lingayen Veterans Memorial Park And Lingayen Beach

 


I was just supposed to stay at home today, for a change.. as I missed just staying here and getting some online chores done. Oh yes, I think I need help with that, dear readers... how to get my blog indexed for SEO or search results. I forgot how that is done. I sure hope someone teaches me "how to get your blog on google search" 

I was just getting ready this day to post on Awww Mondays and Monday's Music Moves Me, but I got a call from my hubby of a change of plans that I should come along on a day trip to Lingayen because our grand daughter Rain is also going! And that means for me, the valuable time to bond with her.. and explore more sights to see. This is what I'm always excited for as Rain's aunt and my hubby settle some papers at the registry of deeds. (grown-up stuff, as the little girl says)

This is a link-up for this week's (not-so) Wordless Wednesday, WW hosted by Sandee, Skywatch Friday, Signs2 and Welcome To My Corner Of The World

Too many photos to share today, so please bear with us :)

                   The World War II Memorabilia Ground Site



That's my granddaughter Rain by the entrance, I took a shot of the scenic spot.. she hasn't looked at the camera, sorry :-) 


That's her posing beside the old Cessna plane





We stayed here longer by the old Sherman tank (as I remember the movie Fury) We had a lengthy conversation about soldiers, tanks, the Japanese occupation. I even told her some tidbits I knew from stories of my grandpa and uncle who served in the World War 2




She's pointing to the article from our town Mangaldan


"Is that the beach?"  to which I answered, "Yes it is.. it's just nearby."    My goodness gracious me.. .. because much later, after her aunt's paperwork was done, she wanted to go see the beach and  go for a swim :-)


"Grandma, take my picture with it, please"



The Lingayen Gulf Landing Marker 
which reads: In honor of those who fought to liberate our country in World War II, may their gallantry and heroism serve as an inspiration to those in whose care rests the welfare of our beloved country. (For Signs2)

And here's more.. we passed by the lovely Lingayen Beach simply giving in to her request to see it. We were quite surprised that the beach was developed into something quite beautiful!

Nice pics from the impromptu bonding opportunity. That beach looks awesome. I think wordpress is better in terms of SEO. I have stuck with blogger though. The keywords present in your posts will get indexed as the search engines crawl periodically. Increase the frequency of the keywords that you want people to search to reach your site.

Thanks for stopping by, Shiju! Yes the beach is so different from the usual ones we have around in Pangasinan. I was awed to see it, it's as if the beach scene came from the Bollywood movies. It's so clean and well-maintained.

Thanks also for the advice on getting indexed on Google. Working my way around it today as well.

This is fabulous especially your granddaughter and her reactions to the military and civilian worlds.

And some great sky-watching today.

SEO - what to do? what to do?

Thanks, Pat! It was a lovely place, I just wished we stayed at the beach longer. There was so much to do that day, that we had to schedule for another time for pleasure. My grand daughter and I enjoyed though
