You know, as much as I complain about the cold here in the winter, I don’t spend a whole lot of time in the summer wishing I were somewhere else. It really is beautiful here in my little valley. But now that cold weather’s hit, it’s about time I got back to all that wanderlusting, don’t you think?
On today’s list of amazing places I hope to see some day: bioluminescent waters. This should be an easy sell for Mr. LPMD Biology Teacher, right?
This stunning scene is brought to you by single celled organisms called dinoflagellates. These fascinating variety of plankton emit a blue light when agitated at night, resulting in the glowing water seen here. And this is how we know Mother Earth is a woman…even she’s can’t resist a bit of glitter in her life. :D
Have you ever seen bioluminescent water? Where in the world was it? Do share.
