Me looking super-happy and dorky all at the same time. he he...I love the beach!And, well, Z loves it, too....he he. The coolest part about this beach is all the stuff you find along the way on shore: We saw tons of teeny jellyfish, a few starfish, and...eew...a washed up sea lion. (Z had to get close and take photos, but it was one of those so-gross-you-can't-look-away from afar moments for me. I don't want to post the picture here, but its really not so bad. You can find it in the flickr set.) It was quite sad...=( Oh! We also found this little seaweed that, surprise surprise, reminded me immediately of an udder. lol...So Z had fun with it:
We got to the very end of the beach and it was just sweltering and super-hot already, so we retreated into the woods for a second and then found a pathway to another waaay less busy beach...And there were all these washed-up logs on top of the rocks and no shade, so Z made us a shade fort! Yay! Perfect for reading books and having our picnic lunch in! =)
And in a few hours, all explored out, we had to head all the way back up the beach to catch the bus back into Tofino. Long Beach is such a fun place - tons of people go there to surf, too, and it's just gorgeous! If you're ever on the island, it's a must-stop place!
Anyway, I'll post a few of my super-favorite shots from the trip soon so as not to bombard you with more in this post! lol...and it's my turn to blog over at Pink Paislee, so stay tuned for that tomorrow! Yay! That means I get to scrapbook tonight! Woot! =) I have seriously missed scrapping as of late! Hope everyone is well! And thanks for peeking, as always!
