We went for a hike at the Botanical Beach trail in Vancouver Island on August 15, 2012 with Dan and Linda. The beach was pretty amazing! The rocks formed tide pools over the years by wave-tossed boulders grinding out pockets in the sandstone. We saw purple sea urchins, mussels, sea anemone, crabs and other tide pool life on our trek. People that were there earlier told us they saw a tiny purple octopus and a starfish in one of the tide pools. We enjoyed exploring the area. It was like a treasure hunt. Being from southern California, it's unique to see the forest coming right down to the beach.
