Last night a group of us (six women) walked down to a small pebble beach here in Atsitsa. When we turned off our torches, the massive light show of the Milky Way seemed to sag over our heads. We took off our clothes and as we stepped into the water, so velvety and gentle, the tiny bioluminescent creatures of the ocean exploded around us, bursting to life against our moving limbs. I’ve done this night swim five times here at Atsitsa but last night the sea was alive with bioluminescence. It was like swimming through stars. Thousands of them.
