Our destination was Botanical Beach Provincial Park near Port Renfrew.  The actual beach is a half-hour walk from the parking lot through the temperate rainforest on a smooth downhill trail.

  1. Ah, such beauty….some of these beauties await us in the near future in our own nearby sanctuary. Thanks for the natural creativity…and, alas, those poor woodens…having to endure the fragrance of that interesting plant that they encountered.

    • I hope your sanctuary is soon full of lovely plants and that you and your Hittys have a chance to admire them. And yes, that particular lily has a very singular version of loveliness!

  2. I laughed over the fiddle head ferns inspiring the girls to become violinists!! All the photos are just grand. I have experience the aroma of the skunk cabbage and can empathize with the dears!! Great pictures.
