Signs of Spring

Every year around March the herring run takes place here on Vancouver Island.  We drive along the coast every day to get to L's school and we've enjoyed watching all that is involved.
There have been hundreds of seabirds on the beach and sitting on roofs of houses and lots of fishing boats close to the shore.
We can see how the water is much lighter where there are huge schools of herring.

Yesterday was so beautiful that we went down to the beach to check it all out for ourselves. 
 The tide was out and we marveled at the amount of herring row everywhere.  We found this little ball of eggs that we explored.
 Soooo many seagulls!
 The row covered everything, even seaweed.
What a wonderful spring day at the beach!

Those photos make me miss the West Coast SO much! I miss walks and runs on the seawall - we used to go at least twice a week. I wish Bear and J-jo could grow up by the beach.

Fantastic pictures very artistic. I wish we had a chance to explore nature the way you did. It's so intriguing to watch the life's circles of various creatures :-). Hugs.
