On the west coast of Vancouver Island near the start of the Juan de Fuca trail you can find Mystic Beach. If you’re willing to walk through dark primeval forests, cross a suspension bridge, and get a little dirty, who knows what you’ll find? After spending a morning rambling around China Beach we decided to head off into the mystic..

Time to move on to Mystic Beach! Our second wonderfilled beach of the day!


Three seals check us out as we walk the shore



and then it was time to head back to Victoria and post-hike victory celebration (aka dinner)


Another day of adventure over and a new one just around the corner.
