Strawberry-Milkshake Coloured Lake

Monday, June 18, 2012

Crikey, how would you fancy a swim in this strawberry-milkshake-coloured lake? This gem is hidden all the way north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal, north-east of Dakar. I read that this lake (Lac Rose) changes its colour depending on the time of the day – it goes from a light purple in the morning to a deep scarlet pink by the evening. The colour itself is caused by harmless bacterias but the high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allows a person to float effortlessly on the surface. Just imagine floating about all day there. Wouldn’t that be fun? Bliss!

P.S: Also, two more awesome lakes: in Australia and in Austria.

Tsuki, when I told my mom about this place she was over the moon happy too. She can't swim so this would be perfect for her.
