The Blood Sea

In November of 2012, Tourists at the world-famous Bondi Beach, Australia, freaked out abit after a ‘rare natural phenomenon’ turned the water at the sea blood-red. Bondi was among several popular beaches in and around Sydney, which was closed because a huge algae bloom transformed the sea into a body of blood. Sort of like a glimpse into what Moses did in Egypt. Also sort of like what the bible said would happen in the last days…

“The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a corpse, and every living thing died ..” Revelation 16:3

The explanation for the phenomenon though was that it is caused when algae flourishes and large groups of the miniscule plants, which can appear in various colours, gather together often with this kind of spectacular results. Algae is known to give the sea its blue-green colouration as well. But red?!
The water was said to have an appearance like it had a coating of tomato-sauce or red oil. A whole lot of algae to make it that thick if you ask me.
Large numbers of fish were believed to have died from the effects of the algae even as i thought fish loved algae. i guess too much of everything…

Was this Algae or was this Angel pouring out his bowl?

there's a really brave man!

there’s a really brave man! Me, i’ll be running on water in the opposite direction
