Cathedral Grove and Butterflies

Today’s expedition was to Cathedral Grove, part of the Pacific Rim National Preserve. Some of the ancient trees there are over 800 years old – they are the living definition of sacred space – they me feel tiny and humble.

Then we visited the Butterfly World and Orchid Gardens, a beautiful change of scenery.

    Sounds like you’re having a great time on your vacation. We went to the Butchart Gardens a couple of years ago – such a beautiful place!

    Tanya – I’d love to go to the Butchart Gardens every season one year, they are fantastic.
