The last time I visited Mystic Beach was 2009, 10 years ago! It’s always been a place that I wanted to visit again and so I did yesterday! I’m a paddler, not a hiker! I got lost twice on a relatively easy trail but it was well worth the anguish! What an extraordinary place!! discovervancouverisland.com/…/mystic-beach

My friend Pavel Novy and I had a great time exploring all the waterfalls along Nile Creek. This area is truly a hidden gem on Vancouver Island, especially after heavy rain! If you want to know more about the area and how best to access it, feel free to contact me at martin@mryer.com

Sandcut Beach – Located between French Beach Provincial Park and Jordan River, just 31 km west of Sooke and 3 km north of Point No Point. (Nikon D810, 50mm F8 – 1/4 second at 200 IS0 with NO FILTER.

This is a beautiful location on the South end of Buttle Lake in Strathcona Provincial Park. One could spend all day composing the setting. I’ll definitely be going back.
