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…
The turkey tail Mushroom
we took the picture and continue along the gorgeous path…
The scary wild man!
Beautiful red roots
Plants growing through the lava cracks
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…
The BIG foot
Oh! and yes, the book… I finished it… and HERE is the link for you to see it!
