I have a love/hate relationship with nature. On one hand, nature is beautiful and awe-inspiring and zen and glorious. I am lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet..Vancouver Island, BC. There is so much natural awesome here, I can't even describe it...we have the ocean, mountains, forests, rivers and lakes, the temperature is fairly mild year-round and in 10 minutes you can go from town to the middle of untouched nowhere.
|View from the top of Mt Washington July 2011. Did I mention this is a 20 minute drive from my house?|
|Chesterman Beach near Tofino, my favourite place on Vancouver Island. Probably my favourite place in the world|
|Chesterman Beach again. I could watch the waves crash into the rocks and explore the tidepools there forever|
|Bears are nature's grumpy garbage cans. They will eat anything, including your arm, if you're lucky...your face if you aren't|
|Canadian geese. They honk endlessly and shit profusely. Need I say more?|
