In this video, Anne and I take a drive down the coast a half hour or so from where we are camped at Thunderbird RV Park in Campbell River to visit Miracle Beach Park.
Miracle Beach is home to gorgeous ocean views and a remarkable rocky/sandy driftwood-strewn beachscape chock full of life. As the tide goes out, several sandbars are exposed, and numerous tide pools crop up to explore. The area is home to a multitude of seabirds. In the distance, there’s a panoramic view of the jagged BC coastal mountains. On calm days the blue sky reflects off the shimmering ocean waters producing a spectacular scene!
Inland from the beach is a beautiful coastal forest including a large campground. Find more information at the BC Provincial Parks Website.
Anne has just purchased a new 90mm macro lens for her Sony mirrorless camera and was eager to test it out. Miracle Beach is loaded with things to shoot. While she spent time engrossed in photography I roamed the beach with my new Sony AX53 camcorder gathering footage of the fantastic scene. It was a partly sunny mid-September day, calm and relaxed.
After a few hours exploring Miracle Beach, we headed back home along the Old Island Highway stopping off at select spots along the way. Included in the video are a stroll through Oyster Bay Shoreline Park, a look at the chainsaw carvings in Frank James Park, plus stop at the Big Rock (a local landmark) and the 50th Parallel.
