Today we went for a hike along the easy trails in East Sooke Regional Park. Here is the view from the top of the trail marked Iron Mine Bay. We sat here, on top of the world, for quite awhile before finally climbing down again. Below us were seagulls paddling in the calm bay and below them was a sea of silver minnows. There were tons of little succulents growing from the rocks where we sat and admired the view. I wish I had a rock garden full of them.

The park has everything you might hope for: row upon row of cedars, a floor of ferns, moss carpeting everything, pine needles and soft pathways underfoot, spirit restoring quiet and wonderful views.
