Salmon Run


When I mentioned to Mark that the seaweed under the bridge in Vinalhaven looks like salmon swimming upstream, he said, ‘I noticed that too.’ I guess if you are lucky enough to witness a salmon run, it never leaves you. The power and incomprehensibleness of their life, the humility and grace of their journey, it’s impossible to take that lightly. How lucky to be transported there, walking along the road, ice cream cone in hand.
