After a trip to Talara this morning with Silvia and Gary, we swam in the pool and relaxed. As we sat there, we watch several schools of fish just off shore. They appeared as darker spots in the water. These patches were evident; and the flashes of silver as they swarmed kept our interest. Then a bird would swoop across the water and a flutter of silver flashes would follow the bird’s path. It was like dominos falling in order or cards falling. And the rustle would make a sound like cards shuffling. I was surprised the birds weren’t more present; it seemed like ideal conditions for a feeding frenzy.
