The skies were cloudy but sunny when I returned to Loboc River after several years. It used to be that this river named Luay-Loboc River in Bohol has only the locals who used it for transportation, fishing, laundry and bathing. But now, Loboc River has become one of the must-see tourist destinations in the island of Bohol.
Years ago, there was just one floating restaurant that ply along the winding river. The town of Loboc itself was a sleepy town more known for its centuries-old Loboc Church and its priceless ancient religious artifacts and for the locals, for its inland market village.
The Loboc Children's Choir as well as the singers of the Loboc floating restaurants added more popularity to the town.
My only hope and prayer that the river will stay as clean as it was years ago inspite of the tourist influx. In that way, people can still see the local kids who like to jump ala-Tarzan from the tall coconut trees to the river.
