1799 – Sandbags at Vellago resort – 7 commandos beach

Although we are home now, I still have several sketches to post from our holiday in El Nido. This one was done at a beach called 7 commandos which is supposedly named after seven soldiers who were stranded there during WWII. The beach is is actually connected to the mainland, so although we were still on our island hopping trip we had technically finished hopping at this point. Anyway, after our lunch we stopped here for a swim and a nice cold (overpriced) beer at the Vellago resort. Because the bar is so close to the sea they have piled up sandbags to protect them from the rough seas.
