And back to our story…

Our first adventure in Puerto Rico was to see the bioluminenscent flagellates in Mosquito Bay on the Island of Vieques. We met at sunset in a big field with wild horses. Unfortunately, Mosquito Bay is aptly named, and to protect the flagellates that we were visiting, insect repellent is not allowed. We got eaten alive. Once we were in our kayaks though and the sun had set it was beautiful, and the flying biting beasties left us alone. The water is stunning. When you sprinkle the water from your fingers, it twinkles like stars. The vortices around the kayaks and paddles glow. Schools of fish swimming through the water glow.
