Today Kirby and I went out to hike around East Sooke Park. It was BEAUTIFUL. The sun was shining and the air was cool. On our way we drove through the town of Metchosin and stumbled on a craft fair!
After a short romp through the craft fair we headed to the park. It started off on the beach and then headed along the coast.
The path was fairly rustic with some beautiful arbutus trees.
Our mid-point destination was a set of petroglyphs. This was the only petroglyph we saw. It’s the profile of a seal.
And here is Kirby touching the petroglyph….
We weren’t able to find the other one. But we did see some nice pools of water.
Kirby and I have some history with this park. We first visited East Sooke park in 2009 when we first moved here. We looked at a wedding venue down the road and when we got to the park, it was VERY wet and I was wearing shoes that have holes in the soles (sadly, I’m still wearing those shoes). So we walked about 15 feet and turned back because I didn’t want to get my feet wet. Well today I came equipped with rubber boots and I couldn’t be happier with my decision! It was very muddy and had lots of puddles and little creeks on the path and I walked through almost all of them shouting “I am invincible!!!” I think I might hike in my rubber boots from now on it was so exhilarating.
