A close up from Google Earth of the start of the walk.
I parked my car in the village hall compound of Lucanin Village. I asked this Gentleman who was very friendly. Lot of people on the street-local National Elections today. DMM # 18 is just a couple 100 yards south from here.
As I left the Lucanin Valley I came across this religious retreat. It was a large beautiful place with swimming pool.
DMM # 18. The swimming pool of the Baptist Retreat. All about one half km north of DMM # 18
DMM # 18, on the beach of the Baptist Retreat. The point there is the Locanin Point. Behind that fence on the left side is even a more,more beautyful place, called 'Rainbow Spring Resort'.
DMM # 19. Continuing my walk, back on the highway. This is a typical view inland when not restricted. DMM # 19 is getting closer.
DMM # 19, looking north. This marker is in front of the Rainbow Spring Resort, a very beautyful place.
DMM # 19 and it's sponsor, no less then the famous...
DMM # 19 in front of what I call the Rainbow Spring Resort.
DMM # 19, across the street from the marker an other beautyful place, the 'Forest Garden'. Would have loved to drunk a beer here but it was to early.
DMM # 19. With this map at this location I'm a little ahead of myself. DMM # 19 is about a half km south or back from here.
This long time logo from the FAME organization has been modified by the 'corregidor.org' web master. I like it very much!
DMM # 19. Two of three pools at the Rainbow Spring Resort.
DMM # 19. The entrance of the Rainbow Spring Resort. The marker is just passed the gate.
DMM # 19. About 300 meters passed the marker is the gate to this outfit which owns the long pier in the previous pic. Between this outfit and the Rainbow Spring Resort is a small fishing village called 'Tacloban II'.
DMM # 19. A little further north is a pier for the 1st Petroleum Related Co.
DMM # 19, leaving it behind and contining into this village Batangas II. The distance between DMM # 19 and DMM # 20 at Lamao is maybe 2 to 3 km.
DMM # 19 is way back now and once apon a time this was a factory. This place is now being demolished.
The big picture of this Lamao section from Google. This section I walked on 29th Oct 2007. But I also walk the side roads to learn about the geography of this WWII Battlefield.
DMM #19 is maybe 1 km back now. Right is the entrance to the very large 'Batangas II Subdivision'. Than following that is a refinery and who knows what else.
DMM # 19 is long behind us. To the right is what I believe is a refinery and powerplant. High voltage power lines start here or are providing power to this place.
DMM # 19. This abandoned section of the old National road is between the highway and the refinery. Did it look that way during the war?
DMM # 19. The gate to one of the many industries between DMM #19 and DMM # 20.
DMM # 19. An other gate to one of the many industries between DMM #19 and DMM # 20.
