Whimsy and Magic

Walking through the coastal rain forest it’s easy to get lost in whimsy.

Moss covered cedars look like Seussian trees hugged by lovably tubby teddy bears.

Twisted cedars have arms worn smooth by creatures resting in midnight snoozes and daylight perches.

Tree trunk cubby holes lead to magical places.

If you’re careful you can even see fairy houses hidden in high branches.

And if you’re very very careful and extremely extraordinarily lucky you might even see the rarest of mythical creatures, a shaggy forest pony bear.
