Happy Valentine's Camiguin Style

Camiguin Style is unique!

We wish you Happy Valentine’s and we do it the Camiguin Style, a day too late but full of lovely and funny surprises.
What, you do not know Camiguin? This small island in the southern Bohol Sea is a wonderful retreat to nature and original Philippine’s lifestyle.

In January 2019, Madam Dove decided to build a nest on the lowest branch of one of our Champagne Palm trees. This is a rather risky place with all the heavy movements during strong wind. It can also be a very wet place under a heavy tropical downpour. But Madam must have had her reasons.

By end of January she started to breed. One day in early February she flew away for a few minutes and we could see two small white eggs.

A very special Valentine’s gift
