It was a wonderful summer day to have a Parksville Wetlands walk.  A great place to enjoy many different species of plants, animals and fungi.

Parksville Wetlands Walk
Great trails for dogs

A short distance to the trail head we passed through rolling meadows with hard hack blooming.  There is a gravel trail to walk on that changes into a soft forest path as you enter the main trail.  Also there is a sign so you know you are in the right place!

Over the railroad track and into the forest we go.  No trains are running on this track today but maybe one day the train will go by as it use to.

The Oceanspray was blooming and the white flowers were draped everywhere on the paths.  I felt like I was in a magic forest.  It was very enchanting.

Beautiful red columbine flowers were also in bloom.  They are vibrant red in color so they really stand out.

In conclusion, I am very thankful for all these day trails in the Parksville area.  Easily accessible and a great place to find peace and serenity.  Chill out time in nature is important to body, mind and soul.

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.
