Night Swim

Last night my daughter and I went for a night swim. It was utterly luxurious. The palm trees were swaying, the stars were visible between the clouds, the sky was a midnight blue and we could hear the crickets still making their night time sounds. There is something mysterious about swimming at night. I think its connected to our ability to see or not. It increases our sensitivity. Our vision is impaired and sometimes we imagine things that aren't really there, it can be very stimulating, exciting or totally scary. We had a lot of fun. These are some of the joys of living in a tropical climate.
