The cathedral of Culion town is from the Spanish time

The Cuyo islands are in the north Sulu sea, goods and persons come and go by boat

At the entrance of the pier stands the gate where the harbor autorities have their dominion

Early every morning fishingboats are sailing out

A reminder for everyone

Children just walk into the (shallow) sea.

On the SW coast of Negros we see in the morning the fisherfleet come back under sail.

The banca's have a main sail and even a small jib!

And this fishing banca has a platform to spot the fish
