A sanity break at Lighthouse Park
There is a lovely park near me at Point Atkinson in West Vancouver. Lighthouse Park.
There’s a storybook lighthouse…
…and a little home for the lighthouse keeper…
…and a little, well tended veggie garden. It’s such a lovely, bucolic spot to visit and take photos.
But the real magic of this park is the surrounding 75 hectares of old growth rainforest.
That’s pretty rare to find in a city, and so necessary for recharging.
And at this time of year, after days and days of rain, walking thru the forest is so magical. Everything is wet and green and dripping and alive.
You can stay in the forest here, or walk down to the ocean and the rocks and beaches and lovely little private coves.
And a new vista to the lighthouse and Vancouver just across Burrard Inlet.
The best thing to do is find a comfortable space and just stay a while.
And then walk back out thru the beautiful forest and get on with your day. 😀
and the pictures you’ve shared of it have just fed my own soul!
how funny! that question mark was supposed to be a little heart.
it apparently lost in translation!
the only question mark would be… how come i’m not there seeing it for MYSELF! LOLOL! xo
Beautiful, I felt I was there with you.
Walks like that on the coast really do fill the empty spots in our souls. 🙂 Thank you for sharing it. *hugs*
Gorgeous photos, Veronica — I thoroughly enjoyed the walk. (But added my own internal dialog to your narrative…. ‘And then walk back out thru the beautiful forest and get on with your day. ?’… “Or not.” 😉
Just stunning images. So enjoyed them!
What great fungi! I took a deep breath and just relaxed into the lovliness. Some days we’re given gifts like this.
Oh you’ve captured the magic and majesty of Lighthouse Park, Veronica!
It’s been years since we’ve been there. Maybe a day trip off the Island next spring.
Take care. xo Carole
