One of the most picturesque beaches I have
seen on the west coast is French Beach
in French Beach Provincial Park.
Overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca
French Beach is the epitome of the rugged
West Coast beach with her rocky shores,
and gorgeous mountain backdrops.
Named after New Brunswick pioneer
James French who preempted the property
in 1885, French Beach is home to many
native species of plants and animals.
A good place for whale watching, too,
with Killer Whales and Grey Whales
making their way along the Strait.
Eagles echoed their haunting calls
as I wandered French Beach
glad that this gorgeous place is
now a provincial park.
