Mushrooms at Beverly Beach State Park (+6 insets)

(+6 insets)

Wonderful Memories of Beverly Beach
Today's presentation is my last from this gorgeous park. I hope we'll get to come back to enjoy it again but we certainly soaked up its beauty over the two-week stay we had here. I was simply blown away by the greenery everywhere and loved every opportunity to take walks on the trails that looped this campground. Though the weather was often too windy or stormy to go out on the beach, I was still able to take advantage on the few opportunities when it was nice.

Today's Picture
One day Steve came back from a walk with Pumpkin on the trail around the park and told me he'd discovered a fantastic group of mushrooms on a stump. The next day we went out together and he showed me the stump…it was right off the trail and yet I'd missed it! I took some pictures with my phone and the next day I came back for more. This one showed one lovely group that posed beautifully for me!

Today's Insets
Inset #1: I found one cluster of lovely Pacific Bleeding Hearts along the trail and was very happy to get some nice pictures. What I didn't realize is that some of the flowers which I've called Bleeding Hearts are actually a related plant called Squirrel Corn. (They are named for the interesting corn-like corms that grow in their roots.) Now that I know, whenever I find white or near-white flowers, they are Squirrel Corn, not these, which are truly Bleeding Hearts (The difference between Bleeding Hearts and Squirrel Corn).

Inset #2: This Bristle Flower, or Piggy Back Plant, grew right next to the trail and was easy to overlook because of the brownish-looking flowers. It was only when you crouched down and stared at these tiny blossoms that you saw how beautiful their dramatic maroon and green-striped petals were!

Inset #3: Partially framed with huge Skunk Cabbage leaves, this image shows the clear water of Spencer Creek and the glowing green plants along its banks.

Inset #4: A vertical panorama of Spencer Creek with the lovely dappling on the streambed and green trees above.

Inset #5: A look up the trail to the footbridge across Spencer Creek, you can barely pick it out in this emerald forest!

Inset #6: A final look at the expansive coastline of Beverly Beach. So breathtaking, isn't it?

Thank You For Stopping By!

Oh wow what a fantastic place, Janet. It is so very green - which makes it so attractive. The colour of trees and the shrubbery are all so close in colour to other pictures, that the view is almost blended into one. As for the coastline photo - absolutely stunning picture. I look forward to seeing your new pictures from your next holiday away.
