iIf you're lucky or you can make this larger, you
will see spawning salmon swimming to the right
of the rock.
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday was so black. Not today…!
When you are travelling, the emotional impact of something unexpected always seems to vastly outweigh the impact of all anticipated sights and/or experiences. So was it with my walk today. I did not anticipate walking today. I thought it would be raining. But I had a dentist appointment in Lynn Valley at 10:00 and I was out at 10:30. There were high clouds, but it was warm and so I started walking.
I wound up walking all the way home. It was a lovely 15 kilometres (3.5 hours) ending in the bar of the Sylvia Hotel for squid and salad.
Walking along Marine Drive over Mosquito Creek I saw, for the first time in my life (see the video above) spawning salmon. What an incredible treat to see such an amazing sight in the city.
