So we had a major herring spawn in Marin this week. The spawn lasted two whole days and nights... (might actually have been three!) The pickling liquid is boiling even as I write this. Other than myself and a few select friends, there was no one to witness it... no one except of course the 12-15 herring boats who's gill net shakers can be heard in the distance throughout the movie below, and maybe a thousand sea gulls. It really is such a beautiful thing to behold... hope this very short movie captures some of it!
