This is a photo I couldn’t take of swimming in the ocean with phospholuminescent plankton last night.
We watched the sunset from the boat and then pulled into a little bay to wait for it to get dark.
About half an hour later we started seeing little glowing spots in the water.
I jumped in to swim with them, the more you move and splash the better you can see them.
It was pitch dark outside, the ocean was inky black except for the plankton, but the water was tepid and inviting.
For once in my life I wasn’t worried about sharks.
The air was warm and there were thousands of stars in the sky.
It was truly lovely, and I hope I never forget it.
