WELCOME TO CHATEAU DU MER BEACH RESORT
If this is your first time in my site, welcome! Chateau Du Mer is a beach resort with a beach house and conference Hall. The beach house could now accommodate 10 guests, six in the main floor and four in the first floor( air conditioned room). In addition, you can now reserve your vacation dates ahead and pay the rental fees via PayPal. I hope to see you soon in Marinduque- Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines. The photo above was taken during our first Garden Wedding ceremony at The Chateau Du Mer Gardens. You can now read the national and international news in this blog at the right side bar. I have also posted my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own, but I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights!

Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, Maryland, USA
This garden is in the middle of a residential area and only about one mile from our residence in Colesville, Maryland(1990-2002). It is one of our favorite garden for relaxation and jogging, since it is walking distance from our house. I love the butterfly and Japanese gardens. Entrance to the garden is free. This garden is a haven for butterflies as can be seen in the following video.
