Best Places to See in BC - Botany Bay

Botany Bay 
on the west coast of Vancouver Island
has everything you would expect from
a name steeped in legend.
Rugged, rocky, windswept
and hauntingly alive.
The easy
2.8 km trail connecting
Botany Bay to Botanical Beach
should be on the must do list for everyone
visiting this area.
From gnarled stunted trees
to the tidal pools and rocky beaches
there is glorious life along every inch of
the trail.
  With me "easy" means
a good 3 hours of ewwwing and aaaaahing
over some fabulous West Coast scenery.
Even in the pouring rain the West Coast
of Vancouver Island is stunning and wild.
Add shifting mist, long stocks of bull kelp washed ashore,
some weather beaten coastline and
Botany Bay is a photographers dream come true.

Though I have not hiked the
it is high on my list of priorities for
the coming year.
