Walking through the forest today I came upon a beautiful mushroom known as Amanita muscaria . With its stunning red with white spots this mushroom definitely looks vibrant. Nature is indeed exciting and often full of many surprises. In addition there are psychoactive properties associated with this mushroom when it is eaten. It is well know that squirrels will have a few bites of this forest mushroom. I guess we will just have to ask the squirrels about this psychoactive claim!
I love the above image of a deep dream Amanita. It illustrates that the forest floor is alive and occupied by mythical life forms that we can only imagine! When we are walking through a forest we do not see a lot of the creatures that live there. Sit down in a forest for a short while and you will often see the creatures of the forest reveal themselves to you. By being silent you will notice a lot of small movements of the forest creatures like birds, banana slugs and small rodents. If you are patient you will always be rewarded!

It was a lovely day to catch the Spider Lake fall reflections. The water was very calm and a beautiful shade of blue. Nature is the mirror image of spiritual reality. You can really feel that here.
This park is very peaceful and quiet – a real zen zone. I always enjoy the fresh air and clarity of the water.
This area was previously a gravel pit and now it is a fantastic recreation area for fisherman, kayaks, paddle boards, and swimmers. It is a good example of industrial land converted back into nature!
A short drive north of Parksville in the center of Vancouver Island, makes this a great place to visit. Nearby are the Horne Lake Caves which are equally as fun and interesting to visit. Please check out more in my blog post below.
In conclusion, thank you for visiting my blog and I am very grateful for your support. Please share my posts with your family and friends if you think they may enjoy them. You can also subscribe to this blog on the right hand column.
Rathtrevor beach waves with zen chill out vibes on this Friday at Rathrevor Provincial Park , Vancouver Island. Meanwhile on the opposite side of this great continent to the south, hurricane Irma is ravaging everything in her path. Stay safe my American brothers and sisters.
As you follow along the beach every corner is a new beautiful scene. The beach is very quiet. Many of the summer tourists are gone. Nature has a chance to take over for a few months. Particularly the beach has some much needed time for recovery. Winter storms will wash it clean again especially at the public beach area.
