    Lake Retba, Senegal or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake you’ve ever come face to straw with. Experts say the lake gives off its pink hue due to cyanobacteria, a harmless halophilic bacteria found in the water. Lake Retba also has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water. A pink lake?! Yes! :)

♥Lake Retba, Senegal. It's named for its pink waters, caused by Dunaliella salina algae in the water that produce a red pigment that uses sunlight to create more energy, turning the waters pink. The colour is particularly visible during the dry season. The lake is also known for its high salt content, which, like that of the Dead Sea, allows people to float easily.

This tropical beach picture places the view on the sand with the surf rolling in gently. A lone starfish lies on the beach awaiting a beach comber to discover it. Neither the photographer nor the location of this beach is identified. But I want to be there NOW!~!!!
