The island at night

We currently are lucky enough to have a lot of visitors coming down to see us. Both family and friends are visiting in the December to Febuary time frame. We plan to post about thier adventures later...and invite them to contribute thier thoughts as well.

For those of you who are not so lucky...the following video is a taste of what it is like to visit us. When you watch it you can imagine that you are sitting on our porch, just after dusk and are watching the lightning bugs and listening to the insects. If you have a good imagination you can also feel the warm light summery breeze that is common during the evening.

We took the video mostly because it is interesting (to us at least) that the lightning bugs tend to almost be synchronized at times. There are moments of blackness followed by slow undulating pulses of lightning bug flashes. It is lovely.
