PIW - Botanical Beach Pt.4 - Unto the Mythologic

Places I've Wandered - Botanical Beach June 2011 Pt.4 - Unto the Mythologic

Perched a mount, on high... a time to rest and catch breath

The rocks cried out and whispered "Be wary, be wary, beware. They lie, they lay, they lie."

we cautiously continued along the shoreline still

take to the hills and the cliff's face to scurry about and around.. to no avail..

The chasm loomed.. insurmountable.. inviting.. mocking and challenging
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1066r
"dive in, vault over, you can do it."

A face emerged from the stone.. beckoning us to enter
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1070r
it tempted then taunted...

"Enter my waters.. I offer safe passage.. welcome my children to you"
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1071r

"They will guide you and care for you"
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1072r

"Caress and take away your worries"
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1075r

Lies foul lies all! The Island Alpinist and I turned aside and stumbled towards the cliffs only to come closer to that which filled us with dread. A cavern most cavernous with pink cotton candy like fauna spread across the stones. An aroma enticed and more promises wafted forth on the breeze.

"Come this way to safety" the voice whispered. "Climb the rope to safety".
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1077r

That rope did not look safe at all! With great care we scaled the cliff face and looked out over our near demise to the mythic chasm below.

A booming voice called to us from the forest! The noble old tree festooned with moss and weary from long labourous buffeting by the wind greeted us and encouraged us. I trust trees. They're good people.
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1082r

At least these guys were.
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1083r

They gave us some advice for which we shall be eternally greatful and we continued to hazard our way through the rainforest. Around and away from the chasm in search of the sea once more.


We would have to find a way to descend to the forest floor... the way lay to the right.
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1085r

A look back first though.. to the sun and the sea and the land we leave behind. Fierce shoreline seen from within our protective forest.
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1087r

The Island Alpinist walks amongst the foliages
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1088r

and they guide us
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1090r

they shelter and suggest for us
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1091r

and with our spirits reinvigorated by our woodland friends we prepare once more to strike forth come what may.
June Southern Van Isle Adventure 1092r

Come what may.
