Well, I’m finally getting around to doing a photo post after working on my new site galleries. The subject of this post is a sure sign of spring coming: the herring season.
One of the cool things about living close to the ocean is all the various life and activities you get to see. The herring spawning season is a really cool highlight. The day before yesterday there was a commercial fishing opening for herring right below where we live. I should have known something was up as the noise of sea lions barking kept us awake all that night.
Taking the dog for a walk down to the beach put us in front of several fishing vessels and hordes of sea lions roaming around. Here are some images:
I’d say there were easily over a hundred sea lions either roaming around feasting on herring or floating in groups, like the one pictured, after gorging themselves on the small baitfish. And they seem to have no fear of the boats or fishermen at all as they cruise right along their nets and scoop herring. There are hundreds of gulls around also which add to the noise and feel of the event…it is just a rich and busy happening that you have to see and hear….and smell….to fully experience.
