(Santa Catalina, Panama)
Since we just experienced a new moon – look at me and my astrology knowledge! – we’ve been having really dark nights with next to no light. Perfect circumstances for seeing the amazing bioluminescence. In fact we’re falling into quite a routine of evening showers off the back steps. Yes, you get to take off the day’s sunscreen and layer of sweat, but awfully more exciting is the sparkling beads of water and glowing streaks present from your own splashing around.
Tonight we upped the ante and took the dinghy out for a burn. Now I’ve been on this particular light-ride more than once, but I’m telling you it does not get old. From watching the glowing wake trail us around, to cupping handfuls of sparkles over the side, the wonder that is bioluminescence is truly remarkable.
When the tour was over we turned the dinghy around and at Nicole’s direction followed the North Star home to Oceanna. North Star or Oceanna’s anchor light very close to the same thing. Ha. Love ya Nicole.
