my dear friend Ginger and I went on a 5:00 am beach walk this morning,
and something TRULY AMAZING happened...
(sadly, we were unable to capture this spectacle on film)
when we stepped into the wet sand, there was a MAGNIFICENT GREEN GLOW radiating from our footsteps, for about ten inches!
we threw sand around and watched it glow.
we splashed around. it glowed some more.
we rolled up our sweats - a look we call "business shorts" (coined after a favorite tune)
and went in to our knees.
we contemplated a swim, but alas we had no suits & no towels, and the morning rowers & runners were starting to come out by then.
we squeaked and squealed and played with joyful abandon like little kids.
(and, yes, I know the dinoflagellates are some sort of toxin, but...)
AND A BEAUTIFUL START TO THE DAY!
