Walk with me / Foraging for mushrooms near the beach / Photo post

avatar

Tonight we went for a walk down to the beach, which also has a park with a lake on the other side and it was just getting near sunset and the sky was incredible so I started taking tons of photos. Usually when we go to the beach it's to swim so I don't take my phone.

IDK why but I have an obsession with mossy rocks, they are so aesthetically pleasing.

We got off super easy with Hurricane Fiona which just ravaged Cape Breton, PEI and New Brunswick but there are quite a few downed trees, really big ones:

While I was waiting for the sky to turn pink we had a walk around the park and basically found the mother load of field mushrooms! We often find these in our yard and have made sure we are able to identify, there is only one type that is similar and poisonous but apparently it stinks and also turns yellow when you cut into it (they are called yellow stainers)

I took this pic thinking that was it then we ended up finding quite a few other patches and came home with this haul, this is a large mixing bowl and it's overflowing:

The sky got beautiful and pink but the beach and sky are so vast I feel it's hard to capture the beauty of it:

The water in the lake is so calm. The view is very beautiful, the surrounding is very clean. And the mushrooms are amazing. It's my first time to encounter that the mushrooms will stink and will turn into yellow.

From what I have read the poisonous look-alike smells like chemicals, I have never smelled it though, these just have a normal mushroom smell like the ones from the grocery store 😃

I love the beautiful sunset photograph and the ones of the sky.

Photographs of the sky gives me peace of mind when I view such.

Thanks for sharing

Hello dear Julia, again I am delighted with your blog. It's nice to know this side of you because I know more about your work as a musician and as an art curator. I find it beautiful to meet you from your personal perspective as a human being and to notice that you are one of those people who appreciate the small and delicate details of life.

I also like moss, I even like to touch it, I also have a weakness for sunsets, the sea and the textures created by the waves hitting the rocks near the shore. I also love the textures that nature gives us every day and it is always nice to know that there are more people who appreciate these things.

I send you a hug and I liked walking with you.

I wish I lived in such a beautiful place with the sea nearby and colors in the sky as fascinating as yours, without a doubt those sunsets paint life full of colors.
