The "R & R"
Docked at the
Officers Landing was a fabulous motor yacht known by all as the "R &
R. " I don't know how long it was, but I do know that it's identical sister
ship was the Philippine presidential yacht! The "R & R" could be "chartered"
for wonderful trips to Corregidor or to beautiful white sand beaches along
the South China Sea coast where she would anchor off-shore for a fun-filled
day of swimming and beach-combing! The trip home would be spent laying
on deck enjoying the warm tropical breeze, or hanging off the bow watching
the flying fish as they scampered out of the way of the oncoming yacht,
or lounging on the fantail watching the sun set behind Bataan and Corregidor!
