Here we are, on the 3rd day of my trip to Wonosari!
This morning… I woke up very late (again). It was 12am, more or less. I went to a juice stall nearby and ordered a cappuccino blend. Refreshing!
Finishing 2 cigarettes, I finally decided to take a shower and actually start the day! Anyway, I was still staying at Ninuk’s house and she wasn’t home when I woke up, so… I had to wait for her to go back home before I left the house. I planned to go back to Jogja after going to the destination of the day.
So… Around 3pm, I already had my breakfast/lunch (merged) and I met Ninuk – so I managed to say bye to her and the whole family – which meant that I was available for the next destination: Pok Tunggal Beach!!
LET’S GO TO THE BEACH!
Pok Tunggal is located in Wonosari, around Tepus area. It was 35 kilometers away from Playen (Ninuk’s house). Yes, it was a looong loooooong way.
To go there, I followed the sign to Tepus or Sundak or Indrayanti. It was a bit tricky to find this beach, because it wasn’t mentioned on the sign. I had to ask where it was to the local people, to make sure that I was on the right track. And somewhere in the way, I passed the Retribution Gate. I had to pay IDR 20K for 2 person: IDR 19K for the entrance and IDR 2K for insurance.
Riding on the asphalt road, between trees and fields, I felt the excitement already! Yes, the heavy road was waiting for me, but I was pretty sure that the beach would be such a healing medicine for the long awaits and ass-pain.
After I found the sign of Pok Tunggal beach, I had to ride for 2 kilometers, passing non-asphalt road. Good for me, the road was newly renovated, so it wasn’t so bad.
Parking my motorbike, and paying IDR 3K for the parking fee, I released all of the excitement. Yessss! I finally touched the beach sands again!
It was a wide beach, with white sands…
When I entered the water, I could see the corals creating the border of the coast…
The water was blue… Or tosca, suited the color better.
I ordered a hot cappuccino from one of the food stalls surrounding the beach like fences. I lit up one cigarette, sipped my cappuccino, and enjoyed the moment…the air…the scenery…the beauty…
The peaceful moment had to end! I had to show the world that I finally set my foot on Pok Tunggal beach. These are the evidences!!
The skies got dark when I was enjoying the sea waves, which meant that I had to go home! I took a shower there (and paid IDR 3K), packed my stuffs, and rode on the motorbike. Back to Jogja!!!
It wasn’t raining, thank God. And there was no traffic. So… I was pretty lucky today.
I arrived in Jogja save and sound. Bringing dirty clothes for myself and stories for you.
Next agenda: post all photos on FaceBook!!!
By the way, I still have 3 days off. I will spent all of them in a lazy mode. Sleep and eat like a pig!!! MWAHAHAHAHA!
