A Good Home, Spring

Salmon Going Upstream

Since we are all self-isolating, the biggest excitement around here this weekend was watching the salmon go up the stream to spawn, as they do every spring.

They are swimming against the current and it forces them back, but they keep trying. Once in a while, you can see them jump above the obstacles in the water and the stream bed.

A cell phone was used to record this (so not the greatest pix) but you can see the darkish shadows of the salmon in the water.  Look closely to the left of the island, middle of the frame. 

A pair of mallards also made their annual springtime return to the stream.

A delight!

I hope you’re staying safe and well.
