The Salmon are Coming! - The Salmon Are Coming!

Saturday, October 3, 2009

This Sunday is going to be a busy day at Tumwater Falls Park just south of Olympia. Not only do the salmon return at this time every year, but it's time to bring the family to "Cider Sunday", an annual apple press. The Washington State Department of Fisheries will be there educating the public on pretty much anything salmon related, while at the same time people can bring their own apples to have them squeezed into cider. My wife has informed me that we'll be going there, so you can bet I'll take the trusty Nikon along. Two years ago I had decided to go to the park to photograph the salmon spawning. I asked a beautiful young lady if she wanted to go with me. Now that lady is my wife.

    What a love story! For the salmon, too, I hope. It's so great that you can watch all this so close to home. We'd have to go way upriver to see it, or maybe to Tumwater :)

    It is a pilgrimage then...
    I could easily imagine a salmon cooked in cider recipe.

    Lovely story. So do the salmon jump over this man-made construction in the river?
