  • Walking down the beach last night after sunset. My frend goes look. He takes a step and the ground around his foot lights up with little green glowy dots. I thought he had a flash light or something until I tried it.
    Are we going to die?
    What is it?

  • bioluminescent micro organisms.

    they light up when disturbed.

    you'll see them off boat wakes sometimes.

    pretty awesome right?

  • Thanks, Mr. Wizard!!!

    It freaks out the wife when we see it out in East Marion at night. I swim around in it and she gets all creepy when I come out and sometimes I look like Homer Simpson glowing in the dark...

  • I considered that I might be having a flashback.

    The coolest thing is when we skipped a rock across the puddle on the back of the beach.
    Trust in the board.
