Bioluminescence

So cool. We went out on deck after dark and tossed tiny handfuls of rice which hit the water like sparks, immediately to be followed by tubes of light (housing fish) that darted around in the water near where the rice hit.

I can’t wait to see a dolphin, a big fish or a whale lit up like that, or to be underway through it. We’ve seen it before, most often in our toilet at night. The first time that happened I thought I was losing it. We’ve also been anchored in a swift current between Portland & Brackman Islands and seen the bioluminescence illuminating our anchor chain – tres cool.

Yes, yes. I wish I had pictures too.

  1. I've never tried the rice trick - what a great idea!
