SHELLY CREEK ADVENTURES IN NATURE

I love to hike in Shelly Creek ravine close to my home.  It is peaceful and quiet even though there is a major highway and city nearby.  A few steps from the concrete city and you are immersed in the deep forest ravine of Shelly Creek.  The air is fresh and the ground is soft for a lovely hike in the woods.  Go play outside.

Shelly Creek has a large volume of water that flows down to the ocean in the winter.  During the summer months the creek disappears underground for most of the summer.  Because of this there are only a few areas that pool with enough water for fish habitat.

Many interesting plants and fungi grow in the creek area.  Maidenhair ferns (Adiatum aleuticum) are very green and pretty.  They are found very close to the creek which would indicate the need for moisture.

Throughout the ravine are remnants of the old mountain bike trails.  The above bike jump is situated very high above the ravine.  Some of the jumps have been repaired in the last year but they still need some work before they are usable.  It would have be great to watch the riders use these jumps and get some air time!

Shelly Creek adventures in nature would be no fun without a canine companion.  Russell is always in the creek when the weather is hot or when it is not!

In conclusion I hope you find your little local nature hide away and enjoy the healthy benefits of Mother Nature.

Labrador dogs love the water. Swimming in Spider Lake is a real treat!  The water is clean and cool just the way dogs love it in the summer months.

My black Labrador dog loves the beach.  Black Beauty will go anytime you want her to.  She especially loves her beach toy and will retrieve it for you when you throw it in the ocean.

Puppy love on the beach

I need some puppy love on Rathrevor Beach, Vancouver Island.  Bring your energy to the beach and feel the exciting nature vibrations.  Puppies are naturally attracted to the beach and are fun to watch as they connect with the source.  Curious creatures they are!
