A flash of a silver sliver caught my eye in the water.I tried to shake my head in an effort to shake the water off my mind and figure out what that flash was. I kept craning my neck out of my small boat to see if I could catch any glimpse of it again.
And then, it surfaced.Like a bullet, it tore the water's surface and pierced the air.It was a fish, which shone blue like crystal, which was as fast as a graceful swimmer and which flew, quite literally, like a shrunk jet plane.
Then there were hordes of these flying fishes, zipping across the water.
I had a feeling I was witness to a most unique dance performed in rythm to the sound of the ocean and to the music of the waves.
