More action from the great Sardine Run!

There are apparently huge numbers of fish further offshore – the best “run” documented for some years now.

There’s a bit of a cold front passing through and there is a chilly wind blowing off the Drakensburg and out to sea.  It’s apparently enough to keep the fish from venturing too close to the coastline :(

I was hoping to see them up close – I’ve been told that there are so many fish in the surf, that you literally see a wall of fish as the waves are just about to break. I had a title lined up for my ideal photo, which I won’t be taking this year…. one day I’ll capture “Fish Face”… ;)
