The Strawberry Milkshake Lake

Strawberry Milkshake Lake

The picture above was taken at Lake Retba in Senegal, which might as well be called the Strawberry Milkshake Lake. The lake gets its vivid pink color from cyanobacteria that are present because of the high salt content — 50% higher than in the Dead Sea.

Like the Dead Sea, it is very easy to float in the water there… if one does not mind the layer of salt crystals that form on the body when you dry off.


Be seeing you.
