Bioluminescence: The language of light

One, if not the biggest highlight of our recent trip to Puerto Rico, was the night kayaking in the Fajardo Bay.

Cameras were not allowed on the trip, but even if they were, I am not sure I could do justice to the unbelievable feeling of kayaking through water that lit up like a glow stick on contact. The cool blue color was not only breath taking, but it evoked a feeling of true astonishment. This giddy feeling of awe and wonder is something that Edit Widder has experienced more than her fair share of.

Oh, and the best part about our kayaking trip? No need for a submersible.
