The Red Tide, by Kenzie
I heard a surfer say red tide is the rust coming off from too many old surfers.
If you were here, you would know that Beacons had a red tide. The phosphorus made the waves glow turquoise / green at night. Though the red tide is a fish killer, it
is a beautiful sight.
Red Tide- "WHAT IS RED TIDE? Red tide is the result of a massive multiplication (or
'bloom') of tiny, single celled algae called Karenia brevis, usually found in warm saltwater, but which can exist at lower temperatures. It is a natural phenomenon, apparently unrelated to manmade pollution. In high concentrations, K. brevis may create a brownish red sheen on the surface of the water; in other instances, it may look yellow green, or may not be visible at all. Some red tides have covered up to several hundred square miles of water. No one can predict when or where red tides will appear or how long they will last since they are affected by many variables such as weather and currents."
Phosphorus- phosphorus is a slowly burning energy that burns at an ordinary temperature to appear luminous in the dark.
