At the end of July we drove out to Port Renfrew
and camped beside the San Juan River at the Pacheedaht campground. It is a
beautiful spot. We were right beside the river where it enters the Bay. It was
high tide, while we had our supper. Foggy and warm with a nice sea breeze. On
our way to Port Renfrew we had stopped at Jordan River for our lunch. A lovely
view. Apparently there are surfers who come out to this area. The low tide,
was at 9:00, so we got up early had our breakfast and drove to the parking lot.
The trail through the rainforest to Botanical Bay is 1.5 kms. It was foggy
again but very nice. We got down to the beach and spent some time looking at
the tidal pools and creatures. There were only a few other people down there.
As we headed back to the van at about 12 o'clock we passed lots of people just
coming down to the beach.
This is the vertical version of two of the
stepping stones that lead into the moss/fern garden under the deck. I hope I
can get it looking more and more like the rain forest in the above photos. I
need more old logs and ground covers for the shade. The hepaticas do well in
moss and shade.
This is the actual real view of the direction
that the stepping stones take. There are five of these stones. The first one
is just behind the primulas. The last one you see here is where this little
path ends just before the dry stream, under the deck.

I have several time consuming hobbies that I enjoy. Gardening was my first passion. When I got my computer my garden suffered some neglect but for all that the garden still looks pretty good.
To those two I have more recently added photography. Photography relates to all of my hobbies, as well as to travel, and seems to tie them all together.
I have a high maintenance, wonderfull husband, who remains the primary interest.
