Glowing Waves in Sandbridge
The waves are glowing up and down the coast of Sandbridge! Bioluminescent algae was once common in the southern Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, but now it is becoming an annual event on the Virginia coastline. Although this algae can be toxic to different types of sea creatures, it is not harmful to humans. The bright glow will only be visible when a wave crashes which causes a chemical reaction. We encourage all current vacationers to go for a walk one night and see for yourselves! These pictures were taken as early as 10 PM.
