Herring Spawn

 

Recently, the herring spawn began along the coast of Oceanside, the water changed colour with the spawn to a beautiful aquamarine colour, reminiscent of the Caribbean waters! Fishing boats could be seen from vantage spots along the scenic ocean side 19A Hwy, and beautiful to see of an evening, with the twinkling lights coming from the many boats, sometimes very close to shore.

 

A short trip from the Bed and Breakfast to the French Creek Marina would give you a great experience of viewing the catch being unloaded from the boats, creating a bustling and busy atmosphere at the small Marina.

 

Nanoose Bay has had a lot more ocean birds feasting on natures spoil, and the odd sea lion making an apperance for a feast of herrring!
