Who wants to stay here for the weekend?
Great Santa Cruz Island is a small inhabited island in Zamboanga City in the southern region of the Philippines that is famous for its pink coralline sand.
Oxybenzone disrupts coral reproduction, causes coral bleaching, and damages coral DNA. It can also cause skin allergies.
Wear reef safe sunscreens, or sunscreens free from Oxybenzone and other harmful chemicals.

Small things can make a big difference!🌏Thousands of seabirds, marine mammals, and sea turtles die every year when they ingest in plastic pollution.😩We're slowly killing the environment, you and the entire earth. Let's stop using plastic straw.💚
A bowl with freshly grated Pecorino from @hamandcheeseco awaiting the fresh pappardelle with Caesar or Ovoli Mushroom (just saw this once which is a huge shame as it was so good) from @natoora and a bit of créme fraïche from @neals_yard_dairy for a quick lunch after the market.
Looking for the neighborhood butcher @TheButcheryLtd, for bones and other cuts for making stocks and braising, we were happily surprised to find a Saturday market on Spa Terminus in Bermondsey. Spa Terminus has some great wholesalers housed in a section of old railway arches, with some producers opening up their store front every Saturday to the general public for them to get a chance to meet with the local community that they serve. Some of the most welcoming, accommodating, knowledgeable vendors that I have encountered with products that are worth your while to get up early even when it is cold and not so nice outside. Beyond great products, much has to be said when people get to know who they are buying from and develops a relationship that we are slowly losing with our fast paced and convenient lives. Glad we still have pockets of these still left wherever we may live.
