Not a post about Hiroshima

There were phosphorescent plankton in the sea!

Mobile-phone button back-light blue at the edges of each wave and in the circles about the legs of midnight paddlers. Also in the air if you threw a large rock seaward. In hindsight, this probably killed several million innocent plankti (plankti?). But they looked beautiful in their airborne death throes.

Besides glowing, the little beauties exhibited the eerie vampire like quality of confounding any attempt at photographing them.

So I threw another rock in.

Ah, it was certainly a moving, emotional evening out there on the beach, luminous spume and all. Plankton, I feel blessed. And by way of thank you here's a song that I feel encapsulates the essence of my brief time amongst you.
