Lights in the Night

Another great thing about night watches is the bio-luminescence in the water- more lights in the night. All someone needs to do is look off the back of the ship and where the water is disturbed, it lights up with hundreds of flickering lights of tiny bio-luminescent plankton and other animals. Last night, a bit past 01:00, the very lucky white watch (while most people slept, including me) got to see something I have wanted to see for a long time: glowing dolphins! I'm incredibly jealous, but it is nature, and I am glad that people were able to see this. There was evidently a pod of around 20 swimming by the ship and it left streaks of light, giving quite a show. I hope that the rest of us are lucky enough to witness this spectacle too before our nights become very short or even non-existent farther south.
