I don’t visit my brother Tony enough. Especially considering he only lives a short ferry ride away in the beautiful (and craft beer haven) city of Victoria. When I do visit however, we usually go for at least one hike. This go around we did the short walk into Mystic Beach up the coast from Victoria. Tony and I had actually done this hike before back in 2010 when we hiked up the Juan de Fuca trail starting at Mystic Beach. The weather wasn’t as nice as the last time we were out here, but was still a fun hike. Plus the recent rain gave a really nice shimmer to the forest. Here are a few shots from our hike.
