We spent a night with friends at Wright’s Beach in the Sonoma Coast State Park over Labor Day weekend
We had a wonderful dinner with salad and grilled salmon. At one point, I noticed that I could see the crests of the waves despite the darkness. At first I thought it was the moon reflecting onto the water, but then I remembered that the moon would have been completely obscured by fog. We talked about it and figured it might be bio-luminescent plankton (since then, I’ve found a few great photos and information here)
I was amazed.
so we ventured in for a closer look. but we didn’t go near the water as we were scared off by the scary warning signs posted by the bathroom proclaiming, “DANGER THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DEADLY BEACHES IN CALIFORNIA” and “ALWAYS WATCH FOR SLEEPER WAVES”. I didn’t have my tripod, but took some handheld shots of the glowing blue waves.
