Ever heard of a red tide? We hadn't either but we LOVE the photos!
A red tide is apparently an algae bloom filled with bioluminescent phytoplankton and it has been lighting up the ocean from La Jolla to Encinitas since Monday. It's a stretch of about 18 miles! The micro-organisms light up along the face of the wave when it crashes near the shore.
The last red tide was in September 2013.

Red dawn? No, it's a red tide. San Diego's waves are glowing. https://t.co/Hiz1RwSXnD— AP West Region (@APWestRegion) May 9, 2018
