walking to the beach

There are a lot of beaches to check out between Sooke and Port Renfrew.  To get to most of them you have to walk through beautiful forests (downhill all the way, some of the uphill walks on the way back were a killer on the thighs!).

Salal

Salal, an evergeen, is the most common shrub in the BC coastal area.  This was on the walk to China Beach.

late Saturday afternoon walk

It feels like Spring has finally sprung here, so it was great to be outside with a lighter jacket, go for a walk and take some pictures.  These are some of the things I saw…

Sunset Walk

I’ve been experimenting in Photoshop lately, and these photos are the ones I’m willing to share…so far!  These are from a walk around Wascana Park in early October where the reward at the end of the walk was a beautiful sky at sunset.

a walk around Wascana Lake

For a flat prairie city, plunked in the middle of nowhere, Regina is actually a very pretty city. When I moved here many years ago I certainly didn’t think it was, and didn’t plan to stay very long, but this is my home now. Wascana Park is one of my favourite places in Regina.  I took most of these towards the end of a walk around the lake (I was walking for exercise, too, not just picture taking opportunities, so I had to keep the momentum going!)…well and the sun was setting, too, so the walk was timed perfectly…

These were all taken in about a half hour time span. I love how the colours changed in that short period of time (they are posted in the order that I took them).
