[DAY 18] Summer solstice

We had the same conditions this morning again but it did not last too long. By the end of the morning, it had clear it and I started to swim. The sky was clear and I could see the sun rays piercing through the thick water.

The light bounced off the phytoplankton, it gave me something to look at for a change.

It was the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and since I had a late start I decided to push it and swim until the end of the day. When I finished a beautiful sunset welcomed me on deck.

  2. I am curious about all the phytoplankton and algae! Have never seen the light affects/colors you mention. Enjoy the beauty! Stay safe!

  3. Good day
    I introduced my class of adults (second language English speakers) to your SWIM today, they were very interested. We agreed that we need to follow your journey.
    God speed.
