Siam: Kenneth on Phosphorescent Eggs in Gulf of Siam


Kenneth tells again of his experience with the phosphorescent sea off the coast of Thailand. It was the Gulf of Siam. Kenneth was traveling on a moonlit night for twenty-five to thirty miles. He describes the sea and the strong impression that the phosphorescent sea had on him and his companions. It was the most incredible, eerie experience, almost heavenly, or angelic. You just could hardly feel it was of this world. It was so unusual. We were just floating on a sea of fire. And the other people in the boat with me were awestruck by it.


Landon, Kenneth (1903-1993)
