i came from a trip near the sea recently and my souvenirs include a lot of red blotches on my arms, feet and legs courtesy of sand mites bites. they are so red and itchy that i’d rather be bitten by a lots of ants instead of these pesky mites (niknik in tagalog).
we passed by a group of spear fishermen who were cooking their catch for the morning. they had some shellfish, sea urchin, lobsters and small fish. talk about some fresh catch from the sea! reminds me of a tourism campaign (i think it was WOW Philipines) where “fastfood” was depicted as a fisherman running along the shore carrying a big fish.
