Water Fire

We went to the beach again last night. And again the sky was spectacular. And so was the surf. As the days lengthen and the water warms up, the phosphorescent plankton appears at night. When a wave recedes and swirls around your ankles the plankton lights up, casting tiny sparkles through the water. Thousands of the plankton are also left near the tide line, in the wet sand. Walking there is magical. Each step triggers a hundred twinkling lights. What fun!

    Got home yesterday after a week on Ocracoke. Only crossed paths with you once but you were busy with the Ghost Walk and did not want to interrupt you while at work. Maybe catch you next trip. David in Fay.
