    visitation of frogs + aqueous age

    Dear teachers,

    in a narrative texts I found this description:

    "One astonishing morning, we had a visitation of frogs.
    Dozens of them hurtled up from the grass ahead of our feet,
    launching themselves, white-bellied, in bouncing arcs, as if
    wed been caught in a downpour of amphibians. It seemed
    to mark the dawning of some new aqueous age".

    What is a "visitation of frogs", and what is an "aqueous age"?

    Thank you in advance,

    When I first read it I was sure it was a mistake. I thought it should be a visitation from frogs. I understand that I was wrong, but is it correct at all then?
