Bohol Baby

This week, the Teeny Traveler is on Panglao island in Bohol. Here's where that is:
We're staying at the Bohol Beach Club, which got mixed reviews on TripAdvisor, but where we've found only one thing to complain about. More on that later. We have a huge suite right on the beach, with a  great porch where Mik and I can theoretically sit and enjoy the evening after Bella goes to sleep. That actually only happened the first night-- yesterday all three of us packed it in at 7:30, which is why I'm up writing at 4:30 this morning.

Yesterday was a rainy day, so we did some of the touristy sightseeing things, like seeing the Chocolate Hills and the two 400-year-old churches on the island. We stopped at a butterfly sanctuary on the way, where, true to form, Bella almost mushed a giant wingtail butterfly. I don't know why Lesson #1 for all guides and docents at insect "petting" places isn't "Never EVER hand the live animals over to kids under 4. They don't know how to DO gentle."
