There were many who came last night to the village of Calheta to fulfill the tradition of St. John with the midnight swim.

But there were those who backed down, since Calheta beach had an intruder yesterday. A Ray of considerable size centered the attention on that side, minutes before midnight .

The species was very close to the coast and crawled along the yellow sand of that emblematic beach. Something uncommon in that area, at least as close to the beach.

Many of those present insisted on recording the moment. There were those who desisted from the dive, but there were also those who ignored what they saw, fulfilling the tradition of St. John. This was because, just after midnight, the ray was no longer seen in the area.
