Botanical Beach Port Renfrew BC

There is nothing like getting in the car and driving down the
coast.... drive and drive to take your troubles away...if only temporary...

Something must be said about the calming, healing effects of watching the
ocean.... strong , beautiful and at times frightening... like life

The mountains too are spectacular... rugged and wild..

beckoning you to them...

The still waters of a creek... making you linger in quiet meditation

to ponder your life and where you are going. To stop looking back

over your shoulder at what could have been. Finally realising the power

in your now...

The waves crashing on the rocks as an example you can weather

this storm if you have faith ...

For me being at the ocean is the time to imagine the impossible

to break free of all my limitations. To regain my hope and know that

everything will be okay...

The road before us is not already written out. It is for us to decide.

I like knowing i have a strong guide who is with me all the way...even

if i sometimes have fear...

The enchanting path through the rain forest take me back to being a child

again ...when things were so simple and my father's love was always waiting..

Even our pets fall captive to the ocean...

their excitement overflows...

What child doesn't love to be in nature..

I love sharing this magical place with mine...

The tide comes in and like life itself you must always be aware

or it will sweep you away...

At one with peace if only for a day with myself...

May your journey in this life be filled with happieness and endless joy...

  12. Hello Pamela. It's been awhile since i visited your blog and I'm sure I've missed so much and will take the time to look back on your posts soon. Your thoughts are inspirational as are your beautiful photos. I know the places you took us to today...thanks for taking us along on such a magnificent trip.

  13. YOu went to Port Renfrew? Did you go on the logging roads? Nice and beautiful. Have a good day Pam.

  14. How beautiful! I enjoyed this post - photos and words. Did you know that some of the comments are covering the last 2 photos and script? I don't know why that happens. Blessings, Pamela

  15. That was such a pretty and contemplative (is that a word?) post. You're right, there is something so powerful about being in nature and by the water. It's always great to come by your blog, i always look forward to reading your posts. I hope you're finding time for balance in your life with the new job. It's not easy...


  16. lovely pictures, Pam. You're right--there is nothing like the ocean.

  17. Pamela,
    What a beautiful post...So sweetly stated. Such caring thoughts. The photos are beautiful. I love the one with Sam and Pilot in the tide pools!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  18. What lovely images, Pamela! We just returned from the Oly Peninsula and saw similar topography, and it was indeed very restful. So nice that you can be in those areas via a short drive!

  19. Pamela,
    My kids have always loved the ocean, and go to it often. My husband and son have surfed the waves all through California, so they know the ocean well. You have really captured the beauty of God's great ocean with your lens, and you have certainly shown that it is a place of peace. These photos are wonderful.

  21. You are truly lucky to have such beauty so close to where you live. I am hundreds of miles from an ocean. Your pictures are incredible and what a lovely day. Thank you for sharing...

  22. What beautiful photographs!! The scenery is amazing, lucky you!!

  23. Such a beautifully written post Pamela. Nature can teach us so many things if we will just listen.
    You live in an amazingly beautiful place!!!!

  24. Port Renfrew is so lovely, isn't it. My mom and dad used to live there, the ocean was so loud at their house that it was almost frightening.
    I love your photos and your sentiments.
    Hugs, Cindy
