The other night, Kiko asked if I wanted to snorkel out round Cap Tossa at midnight. Hell yea. His daughter Nerea and a friend Lito swam out with us. No moon, the sky splashed with stars, the water was cloudy with plankton and sea stuff; Kiko and Nerea swam out on point to skewer fish for the grill with our tridents. I kept watch on Lito since he had limited experience as a snorkeler, he carried the catch in a bag strapped to his waist.

On the way back, I switched off my flashlight and watched the phosphorescence glow around my gloves like fireflies. You could almost use the light from their glow to illuminate the surroundings by scrubbing your hands in front of you, it was so bright, no real need for a flashlight.
