Miracle Beach Provincial Park

Today we returned to another favorite spot, Miracle Beach Provincial Park.

While this park does not offer lengthy trails, it has an awesome beach (at low tide) that attracts Canadian sunbathers. When we arrived the beach was crowded with families and groups of children from schools or camps. The tide was at its ebb so there was lots of sand to play on.

Though few in numbers, the trails offer beautiful vistas of the ocean and the mountains on the mainland.

Plant and animal life is diverse and interesting.

I found this jigsaw puzzle. Someone had thoughtfully laid out the pieces, but it was too difficult for me.

We stopped to do some sketching.

The tide began to come in while we were there. We returned home and by the end of the afternoon the bay in front of our house was filled once more. I’m watching the sailboats as I write this.

    The combination of saltwater and mountains is one of the aspects of living in this part of the world that I appreciate the most. Thanks for sharing the photo of the beach and mountains. I loved that one in particular.
