Located in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island is a beautiful piece of nature – Florencia Bay beach.  A short walk in to the beach brings you into a natural paradise of sun and sand.  I have been visiting this beach for many years and it is still very untouched and natural.

Lots of driftwood washes up here and some artistic folks enjoy the peaceful atmosphere to create their masterpieces.  I was very impressed with the above driftwood man.  He stood out on the beach and appeared as a watcher of all activities.

A perfect beach for a long walk while the tide is low.  Lots of interesting shells, rocks and sea creatures to be seen.  A fantastic beach to go play outside!

I hope you get a chance to visit your favorite beach this weekend.  Nature soothes and heals the tired human soul.  Being beside or in the ocean is my favorite place to be.

It was a beautiful spring day down at the Nanaimo Harbor.  The blues from the ocean and sky were spectacular.  Lots of small shops were open and people were enjoying the sunshine.

A nice seawall walk at the waters edge takes you as far as you wish to walk.  A peaceful and serene place in the middle of a city.  There are lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a coffee and the view.

Standing tall in the harbor is the Bastion – built by the Hudson’s Bay Company to defend its coal-mining resources.  We couldn’t go inside the building since it was shut for the winter.  This gives us a reason to come back again!

A short but slippery hike in to Little Qualicum Falls.  Beautiful green shades contrasted against the snow make you feel like you are in a fantasy world of nature.  It is extremely quiet today until we turn a corner and start to hear the falls.

A slight mist in the air helps create a vibrant scene of water cascading down a rocky gorge.  Truly an elemental nature experience.  A person could be mesmerized for hours staring at all this lovely water.

The closer you look the better it gets.  You can really feel the spirit of the deep forest waterfall.  It is a special healing experience hiking into this gem of nature.  Nature is the mirror image of spiritual reality.

We really enjoyed this short deep forest walk to the Falls.  There are longer walks you can take if you wish.   This park is very easy to access and the parking is great.  I recommend it to anyone who loves nature.  Please check the link below for more information on the park.

Astral Beaches Space Photos

I found an interesting App that makes beach photos into Astral Beaches.  This space photo app is easy to use and creates some amazing surreal images.

I love to hang out at the beach. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to hang out on some of these Astral Beaches!

The above astral beach is in a psychedelic state of being.  This beach would be for people who needed a vibrant and colorful vacation or place to hang out.   I would think that this beach would be popular with the psytrance tribes.

I hope you have enjoyed my space art creativity.  Please share with your friends if you like and thanks for your support!  Nora 🙂

The maple trees were dripping with moss coupled with their yellow leaves which brought a little artificial sunlight to the nature scene.

The main waterfall was spectacular with its own cosmic light illuminating the huge expanse of water flowing to the ocean.  Altogether it was a fantastic walk in a place of amazing nature.
