Canary Yellow VW Beetle

I spotted this VW Beetle parked along the boulevard, just south of  Bethel Guest House. Judging by the canary yellow color, I believe this one may be the same as the first one I posted on this blog in November, 2016.

The hub caps appear to be different, but those can be upgraded easily enough.

The only way I could definitively know if they are the same would be by comparing the license plates. Sadly, I began hiding the numbers since the beginning of my posting of the VWs photos.

A Neglected Lime Green Beetle

As I've mentioned before, on days when my son is in school, I'll drive into Dumaguete long before time for him to be let out of class,so that I might find a suitable parking spot along Hibbard Ave. near the gate where he exits. I'll spend the time roaming around the city on foot. Most of the time I head south towards Lee Plaza or McDonald's, but this afternoon I went north in the direction of the Coco Grande Hotel.

I don't often walk in that direction, but I had an urge to do so today.

Just before reaching the Coco Grande, I noticed a little side street between the hotel and a section of the high school. I call this a side street because it's paved, though I could tell it wasn't open to traffic. Continuing to follow my hunch, I walked down the little street.

It actually winds down around the high school, but I didn't go that far. It was on this little street that I came upon this lime green VW Beetle.

When I came upon the Maslog VW on Sunday, I opened the back to see if there was an engine. I didn't do that with this lime green Beetle, but it's obvious that it hasn't moved in a long time.

Street Photograper

Now that Google+ is soon to bite the dust, I'll be posting some of my random street photos onto this blog.

I saw this young lady taking photos along Perdices St. just in front of Lee's Plaza here in Dumaguete. I have no idea what it was that caught her attention, though she seems to be engrossed in whatever it is she's photographing.

Random Bits

Weather permitting, I usually take a morning walk. On most days, I will walk along the road leading from our apartment to the public market in Sibulan, although I will occasionally join friends in their walk along the boulevard in Dumaguete.

It's been a while since I last took my morning walk along the beach, and I thought I'd do that this morning.

These photos are of random bits of coral and shells found along the beach.

A Maslog VW Beetle

Pulling out onto the National Highway in Maslog this morning headed to church, I spotted this pitiful VW Beetle on the side of the road. Naturally, I parked my car and walked over to the VW for close up photos.

I don't recall seeing the VW there the day before, so obviously it was brought to that spot some time Saturday. It's also obvious that it won't be moving under it's own power any time in the near future.

I've Christened this one number 59 in my collection of VW Beetle photos. I thought that perhaps it might have been the Beetle I spotted in Amlan 2 years ago, but after looking through my photos, I'm sure this one is entirely new to me.

I'm curious to see if this VW will be hauled off to the VW graveyard. I can't imagine this one being fit for anything.
