Chico River at Ambalayat in Tagudin, Ilocos Sur
A Good place to have picnics

If you want to have a picnic in Tagudin, you can have a lot of options where to go. You can go to the beach, the rivers or the many farms or "bangkags" as we call them. We (my friends and occasionally family members and I) sometimes go and spend a day at those places especially in the summer months. Those are good places to go to if you want fresh air or a relief from the heat or to just go and have fun. Just choose a place where there are a lot of trees, a nipa hut or some kind of shades though for it can get really hot in those places especially by the beach or by the river during the warm summer months. Don’t forget to bring a suntan lotion with with UV light protection. These pictures were taken in Barangay Ambalayat at the Chico River part of Ambalayat which is called Baac because it is near the mountain called Bantay Baac. It is in the very eastern part of Ambalayat. You have to walk to go down there from the residential area but it is worth the walk. There are are two rivers that pass through Ambalayat, the Chico River and the Amburayan River. Both Rivers merge somewhere down in Barangay Pula then the two rivers become one big river in Barangay Bio. Amburayan is the bigger river and this is the one that has the hanging bridge at the entrance of Ambalalayat. Amburayan River often refer by the folks of Ambalayat as "Karayen Dakkel" and Chiro River as "Karayan Bassit". I was invited by some of my friends here. It was nice having "binurakan" with them. For those who don’t know, "binurakan" are the fish caught by a kind or technique of fishing called "burak". I am not sure why it feels so good to eat by the river or by the beach. I always have a good appetite at these places even if the food is just simply rice, fish and some veges with "boggoong" or “patis” (fish sauce). Of course, the "padarondon" usually gin or "basi" always makes it more fun especially when you are with a group of people.
