Island View beach nature walk

A nature walk at Island view beach walk right under the bluffs or left down the miles of beach or the acres of trails above the beach. The bluffs hold "drowned forest" beneath the sand and mud. The regional park is 52 hectares with everything from dogs to dunes. I suggest we meet at the third parking lot. You see the first lot as you drive down the hill, turn left past more parking and past the campground is the third parking lot. I am making the date Saturday Feb. 8 so if it rains on Saturday we can do it on Sunday.

    I was talking to a young woman just as we started the walk today about micro-adjustments for poor focus on her camera. I didn't catch her name... my bad. Anyway here are a couple of articles to guide you:

    It was a really nice spot to go for an afternoon photo walk and meet up with the group. Thanks to James for organizing it.

    Cold, but interesting.

    At the beach walk today, a nice man (whom I didn't get his name) lent me his gloves. I didn't see you when I got back to the parking lot. If you need them right away, I can bring them to you or just bring them to the next meetup. Either way works just fine for me : )

    Hi there,

    My ride has fallen through...could anyone provide a ride ..I live downtown, could bus to a convenient spot.

    February 8, 2014

    • James X.

      I live in Langford. It would be too far away to go to Downtown for me. If you could come up to Uptown or Royal Oak Bus Station then I can pick you up.

    I had a mixup with the start time and won't be able to make it now :(

    February 8, 2014

    • James Y.

      Thanks Carl, I did not even know it was a road. On Homathko drive past the two parking areas on your right then past the campground into the third parking lot

      February 7, 2014

  • James Y.

    Yes Ken it will be cold so layer up. Also cool your equipment down by leaving it on the floor in a cooler spot tonight. We have snow out here right now, this will make for beautiful photographs. I for one hope it sticks around at least for the weekend.

    What kind of shoes should I be wearing? I have waterproof hiking boots and hip waders… Are we going into the mud?

    February 5, 2014

    • Ken J.

      James, that's a great question! I believe with the forecast for continued cold, clear weather that the best foot wear would have good grips as the ground should be frozen.

      February 6, 2014

    • James X.

      Good point, Ken. Thanks!

      Not sure who Robert is nor where he lives and I don't see a Robert on the attendee list. So I have no idea where I'd need to be and when on Saturday. Please advise

      February 6, 2014

  • Ken J.

    I'm in James Bay and planning to attend if anyone still needs a ride.

      Hi James...I was able to get in touch with Ann again and she is fine for me to go along with her for the Island View event as well. Her original reply went walkabout it appears.....

      February 3, 2014

    • James Y.

      Thanks Jaquline, I just wanted to put the word out about ride sharing again and used you as my example. Oops. Thank you for setting me straight.

  • Carrie C.

    Is it okay to come anywhere in that time frame or 1pm sharp. I may come with my daughter if the timing is flexible.

    February 2, 2014

    • James Y.

      I am all about flexible. If you can not make the afternoon and want to shoot in the morning or even the next day that is fine.

      February 3, 2014

    • James Y.

      So come and join us anytime that would be great.

    I'm busy, but this is my favourite combo of meetups, walking, beach and photo!! Let's do another like this later in the year!

    Never been there. It is a long drive from the Westshore so that the best I can do is a 'maybe'.

    Is there a phone number we can call to make sure people are able to find each other? Also, I live about two miles away a couple blocks off of Island View. If someone can give me a ride, that would be great. I don't have my own car.

    1 · February 1, 2014

    • James Y.

      I am in the area myself and would be happy to give you a ride. We will all be at the far left parking lot just past the campground.
