Sunrise at Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park
I think I'm turning into a seagull 'whisperer', I frequent Rathtrevor Beach so much. Last week, raced to the park hoping to catch the sunrise and was rewarded with purples yellows and oranges- it was glorious! As if the sky wasn't rewarding enough, the golden rays of the sun reflected on the wooden fence beautifully. What a lucky whisperer I am. Source: Susan Miller, 2015 myPQB Story Contes

Three Willow Flycatchers were singing near the road as we walked by. We had great v

Qualicum Beach Heritage Forest
I find it incredible that just one kilometre from Qualicum Beach's picturesque downtown, I can reach a 50-acre forest sanctuary of 400 year old Douglas Fir, a fish-bearing creek, and gentle walking trails. It's about the same distance from the town's popular seaside promenade. Years ago, my walk home from work would take me through the Qualicum Beach Heritage Forest. How lucky was I to commute
