Along the Botanic Loop walk, there are several short paths off to the ocean shore, where you can explore. As land-locked Albertans, every chance we get to sit and contemplate the vastness of the ocean, we jump at it.
As this is a Provincial Park and conservation area, signs are posted requesting you be careful walking on the rocks, so as not to damage the habitat. Also, warning signs are posted to stay back from the edge of the shore during windy conditions, lest you be swept out to sea. No problem, we were there to take it easy and thus in no hurry.

After exploring for a bit, it was back on the trail.
Here I am in my element.
