Located in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island is a beautiful piece of nature – Florencia Bay beach. A short walk in to the beach brings you into a natural paradise of sun and sand. I have been visiting this beach for many years and it is still very untouched and natural.
Lots of driftwood washes up here and some artistic folks enjoy the peaceful atmosphere to create their masterpieces. I was very impressed with the above driftwood man. He stood out on the beach and appeared as a watcher of all activities.
A perfect beach for a long walk while the tide is low. Lots of interesting shells, rocks and sea creatures to be seen. A fantastic beach to go play outside!
I hope you get a chance to visit your favorite beach this weekend. Nature soothes and heals the tired human soul. Being beside or in the ocean is my favorite place to be.
It was a beautiful spring day down at the Nanaimo Harbor. The blues from the ocean and sky were spectacular. Lots of small shops were open and people were enjoying the sunshine.
A nice seawall walk at the waters edge takes you as far as you wish to walk. A peaceful and serene place in the middle of a city. There are lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a coffee and the view.
Standing tall in the harbor is the Bastion – built by the Hudson’s Bay Company to defend its coal-mining resources. We couldn’t go inside the building since it was shut for the winter. This gives us a reason to come back again!
