Out of the Jurisdiction: Walk to the Ocean


The walk to the Indian Ocean was different from other beach access walks I have taken.  The land
just beyond the beaches is densely forested, so the walk is like hiking through a wooded tunnel.


Gorgeous.  


Along the way I saw a few brightly colored butterflies.
With limited wifi, I have not been able to identify them yet.

Beautiful butterfly! I would have liked the tunnel effect.

This sort of reminds me of a place I go on the Oregon coast. There are lots of wooded trails that lead to the beach there too. Love that butterfly.

Not many tourists here, eh?

Amazing colours on that butterfly.

The walk looks like a real exploration, Jack!

It certain looks and sounds like it is a nice way to access the beach. Love the first shot! Just wondering did you by chance get a shot at the end of the tunnel before leaving the tunnel that shows both tunnel and beach? I would love to see a shot like that, I think it would be an amazing view.

Looks like a lovely hike with the ocean at the finish line.

Add two kids and you've got The Walk to Paradise Garden by W. Eugene Smith.

Yep. Totally gorgeous.
I knew butterflies came in colors like that but I've never seen one in real life.

Very pretty butterfly. It's a gold banded forester, Euphaedra neophron (I looked it up.) It needs a more exotic name, with iridescence like that turquoise.
