Earlier that day Mick, Steve and Eamonn visited the Jungle Experience & Survival Training camp in Subic where we watched a demonstration in getting water from bamboo, went in a butterfly enclosure, had a close encounter with an eagle and looked at the animals

Steve didn't seem that impressed by the bamboo demonstration

Then onto lunch at Vascoes Nautical Pub overlooking Subic Bay

Eamonn gets refreshment. The local health and safety officer complained that the restaurant didn't have a fire escape, a bit silly given it juts out onto a bay and is open on three sides. The owner responded by putting life jackets around the restaurant with fire escape signs on them, one of which can be seen behind Eamonn.

The health and safety officer also complained about the restaurant's caged birds, so the owner decided to warn off the wild variety.

The chair Steve is sitting on is a pilot's chair rescued from a plane that crashed in the bay
