Dinner at The Manor Camp John Hay Picture with Santa Claus
Next day, we visited the Cemetery of Negativism, established over 30 years ago
by the commanding general at Camp John Hay to remind everyone to be more positive.
Here, they buried negative thoughts, emotions and attitudes. Some of these are pretty funny.
We walked to the Amphitheater and the Bell House. The house was named for
Major General J. Franklin Bell who first came to the Philippines in 1898.
He was commanding general of American forces in the Philippines.
Day 2, we rented a van with a driver.
First stop was the Mansion house, summer residence for the President of the Philippines.
Next stop, Mines View Park
We followed the newly-constructed pathway to see the view of the mountains...
The Roberts dressed as Igorot Indians
Shopping was plentiful
Time to brave the traffic again..... on our way to the strawberry fields.
Besides fields of strawberries, there was broccoli, several varieties of lettuce and beautiful petunias.
After a full day of site seeing, we went back to the hotel to get ready for dinner.
Santa found us again :)
We spent Christmas Eve having dinner with our wonderful senior couples.
What a blessing it is to serve with them.
