Shipman Beach

June 2012

I was about to finish with my Medicinal Plants book project and there was one plant I was missing a picture of!  I needed that last picture to print the book… a picture of the “Turkey tail mushroom”. I couldn’t seem to find it anywhere so I let it go and decided to take a break. The plan and destination: Shipmen Beach.

We started hiking, and after a few yards in the path.. there it was!! The mushroom!!! and it was so beautiful .. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Oh so awesome…

and so we arrived at Shipmen Beach….

The river flows into the ocean so there is a mix of warm and cold water that feels divine. There is underground fresh water bubbling up through the sand into the ocean and you can feel it with your feet! like jets in a jacuzzi! So unique and lovely…
