Fish in mid air
This was my first weekend alone in Victoria - two months after moving here!  Thank you all for visiting me :)   Luckily my first weekend on my own coincided with the first weekend of Christmas craft fairs, so I made myself a list of community centers and got going.  But that is besides the point!  The highlight of my day was finding this really beautiful park - Coles Bay regional park.  It was just a tiny park with only a 5 minute walk or so down to the water - a very small cove.  I took a few pictures and was getting ready to head back to the car when I heard a loud splash - spun around just in time to see a massive salmon catapult itself through the air!  It was so cool!!!  I couldn't leave.  It became my mission to get a picture of one in the air - so I huddled in under my hood and waited.  My dad says that they do this when it rains - something about getting excited when the fresh water hits the salt.   Two fish were jumping one after the other, every 5 - 10 minutes or so, and i repeatedly missed them in action.  When I finally switched to video, the fish all but disappeared..... but after a long wait, they came back.... I don't know if I am a bit unusual in thinking this is like the coolest thing in the world, or if it actually is pretty cool, but you decide!
