Located in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island is a beautiful piece of nature called 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.

This beach is very easy to walk and is surrounding by trees, sun, and surf.  What more could you want in life?  Listening to the sound of the water breaking in on the shore is very relaxing and clears your mind.  As humans we think too much.  Calming the mind is important to your health.

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 tall on the beach and appeared as a watcher of all activities.  I have seen similar driftwood creatures on other beaches but this art is fantastic.

This is a perfect beach for a long walk when the tide is low.  There are lots of interesting shells, rocks, and sea creatures to be seen.  In addition this is a fantastic beach to go play outside!

I hope you get a chance to visit your favourite beach this weekend.  Nature soothes and heals the tired human soul.  Above all being beside or in the ocean is my Zen place to be.

We really enjoyed a beautiful spring day down at the Nanaimo Harbor.  The blues from the ocean below and sky above were spectacular.  We also found lots of small shops to shop.  As well as shopping many people were enjoying the beautiful sunshine.

A nice seawall walk at the waters edge takes you as far as you wish to walk.  There are lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a coffee and the view.  This is a peaceful and serene place in the middle of a city.

Standing tall in the harbor is the Bastion which was 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!

A short but slippery hike in to Little Qualicum Falls.  Beautiful green shades contrasted against the snow make you feel like you are in a fantasy world of nature.  It is extremely quiet today until we turn a corner and start to hear the falls.

A slight mist in the air helps create a vibrant scene of water cascading down a rocky gorge.  Truly an elemental nature experience.  A person could be mesmerized for hours staring at all this lovely water.

The closer you look the better it gets.  You can really feel the spirit of the deep forest waterfall.  It is a special healing experience hiking into this gem of nature.  Nature is the mirror image of spiritual reality.

We really enjoyed this short deep forest walk to the Falls.  There are longer walks you can take if you wish.   This park is very easy to access and the parking is great.  I recommend it to anyone who loves nature.  Please check the link below for more information on the park.

I found an interesting App that makes beach photos into Astral Beaches.  This space photo app is easy to use and creates some amazing surreal images.

I love to hang out at the beach. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to hang out on some of these cosmic beaches!

psychedelic beach

The above astral beach is in a psychedelic state of being.  This beach would be for people who needed a vibrant and colorful vacation or place to hang out.   I would think that this beach would be popular with the psytrance tribes.

I hope you have enjoyed my space art creativity.  Please share with your friends if you like and thanks for your support!  Nora 🙂

In essence the Englishman River fall reflections were beautiful today on our walk.

The maple trees were dripping with moss coupled with their yellow leaves which brought a little artificial sunlight to the nature scene.

The main waterfall was spectacular with its own cosmic light illuminating the huge expanse of water flowing to the ocean.  Altogether it was a fantastic walk in a place of amazing nature.
