at the beach right now, the water is cloudy and every piece of seaweed washed ashore is covered in herring roe. lots of herring are washed up too, done with their spawn (although they can live for several seasons and spawn again). seabirds and eagles are feasting, along with sea lions and seals out in the water. the fishermen are busy too. it's a curious cycle of spring, the herring spawn in the strait.
