Surigao Del Sur's Sanctuary for Restive Souls
Written by Romel M. Oribe

(Originally published in Philippine Daily Inquirer. With Permission from the author.)

It was low tide at Kansilad Beach Resort (KBR) and the sun was murderous, making the sea retreat from a shoreline in paler shade of brown to a silvery expanse where it became a mirage. And thus, exposed before me was the sea’s underbelly of muddy rocks, weeds, and driftwood. Out there, in the subterranean chambers that my eyes cannot see, were skulk fish, crustaceans, and mollusks that, in time, would become parts of the local food chain.

Such was KBR’s seascape when I arrived one Thursday noon in August, sweating under the flimsy cerulean sky.

We were on a two-day teambuilding seminar and the service vehicle that Gov. Bebe Pimentel lent us was a squeaky non-aircon, box-type L300 that was older than my officemate’s teenaged son. But we had no reason to complain; our office doesn’t have a vehicle of its own for almost half a decade now. Unlike my officemates, I was tightlipped, unfazed. But like them, I also had a bagful of Alaxan stashed in my backpack.

The ride from Tandag to KBR was bumpy, dusty, and infernal. Crammed with humans, training supplies, utensils, and provisions, the car had limited legroom. For over two hours, I had to point my toes like a ballet dancer on freeze. This must have prevented the blood from circulating because when I got off, a funny sensation tingled my feet, almost paralyzing me. But as if in reflex, I licked my index finger and drew a cross on my dusty feet, just as Lola had taught me.
I’ve been hearing a lot of nice things about KBR but I remained unconvinced. Yes, I had to see it to believe it. Back then, my friend Sammy Dolano said that KBR was “isolated but accessible.” There goes an oxymoron, I remember saying to myself. But it turned out to be an apt description because KBR is a cove secluded by the backwoods of Sitio Kansilad in Lianga.
