Transaction at the Aklan River, Kalibo, Aklan

Don't really know what they were doing. I was on a car crossing the bridge between the towns of Kalibo and Numancia when I saw this below. I loved the shimmer of the water and the coconut trees beyond so ... I readily pressed the shutter of my ever ready camera.

The Aklan River is the principal river of the province of Aklan - its head waters are in the highlands of central Panay island (in the town of Libacao) where white water rafting is being developed as a tourist destination. Toward its mouth in Kalibo, the river goes through seven towns ... it is on its banks where these towns were settled. Once in while, when the river floods, ancient burial places are uncovered ... porcelain plates and celadon jars are unearthed. This part of the Philippines according to myths and legends (and some historical base) was settled by Borneans in the 13th century and active trading with the Chinese and Vietnamese was in place before the Spanish came in the 16th century.
