A beautiful day for a short hike at Moorecroft Park!  The ocean and mountain views are magnificent.  Spring is in the air.

On the Eastern side of Vancouver Island this park offers views of the British Columbia mainland and Georgia Strait.  Great place for kayaking or paddle boarding.

Rocky shore Moorecroft Park
Rocky shores

The shores and beach is very rocky making it a great place to warm up in the sunshine.  Also a great place to find some privacy and serenity.

Many Arbutus trees are present on the shoreline.  This indicates some major wind in the winter months.  Today there is a slight breeze which is perfect to check out the inland trails.

Throughout the forest bright green moss envelopes the ground.  After a wet winter this moss is doing very well.  The deep forest is so peaceful.
