Sunrise Boulevard

Sunrise Boulevard in Baganga, Davao Oriental is so called because it faces the east. The locals credit the mangroves for saving them from the fury of typhoon Pablo in 2012, but what used to be a lush coastal forest is now filled with whitewashed tree trunks with gnarled branches that seem to stretch up in prayer to the sky. It is still beautiful in its own stark way, and many people still frequent the place to wade in the warm waters under the sparse shade provided by the trees.
