We already showed you the beautiful Puka Shell Beach on Boracay Island (check out that post here), but we didn’t tell you the story of a sweet little girl that was completely fascinated by little Elijah. At first we didn’t notice her, but looking back at the photos, I noticed that she was in the background of a few of them. In the image below you can see her standing to the left, in the pink and while outfit, looking at Elijah. Slowly but surely, as the hours passed, she inched closer and closer, until she finally plucked up the courage to sit down on a beach chair near us. We started walking to her and found out that she has lived on this island her whole life. Her mother was nearby – she told me a little bit about them, and that they were Christians. She said that her daughter was fascinated with Elijah’s big blue eyes and the fact that he looked like “a doll”. We were told this a lot in the Philippines, that Elijah looked like a doll.

Here are some pictures of Elijah’s admirer and our amazing afternoon on Puka Beach.
While mommy wandered off to take some photographs, the boys relaxed under the palm trees.
