Re: Pictures: Glowing Blue Waves Explained
We frequently see a similar phenomena in the Gulf of Mexico on our annual trips to Key West and points south. My girls like to ride the bow (with tethers to jack-lines and life-jackets) when the weather's nice and a wave splash will sometimes leave them laughing and glowing. My better half calls it the "glow of good health".
"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
