Coming back from a trip to Nanaimo we stopped at Sebastian beach.  The blue colors were spectacular and the view was magnificent.

Sebastian Beach shoreline

An easy beach to walk and lots of shells and rocks to beach comb.  There are private homes on this beach but many are well hidden behind greenery and beach logs.

Sebastian Beach waves

Also this beach area would be a fantastic place to kayak or paddle board with some gentle waves hitting the shore today.  The water is fairly shallow on the beach side which would be good for kids.  A little deeper out and the swimming is great!  Be careful on the rocks which are very slippery when wet.

interesting sandstone rocks

I love to walk on the sandstone rocks with all their wonderful patterns and shapes.  On one side you can look deep into the ocean and if you are lucky,  see some sea creatures.

Sebastian Beach North Views
views to the north

Views to the north Courtenay area are clear and spectacular.  You will definitely be amazed by all the nature vibes.

In conclusion, take a quick trip to Sebastian beach next time you are near Lantzville on Vancouver Island.  Besides the beautiful views it is a nice location for a coffee break or a picnic.

Florencia Bay Beach

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.
