Pictures from photo gallery: "Ocean Pictures"

Driftwood that is seen here littered along the beach has accumulated when logs that are floating in the ocean get washed up on the beach. In this coastal scene the upper fringe of Wickaninnish Beach is just covered in this driftwood. The rough waters of the Pacific Ocean can be seen in behind the beach located in Wickaninnish Bay, which is part of the Pacific Rim National Park, Long Beach Unit on the west scene of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

This area of the island is also part of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve as it is protected land that cannot be developed or changed. It is part of the area used by the First Nations groups in the region to develop sustainable living practices so visitors here are asked to leave the beach as they found it.

Wickaninnish Beach is a popular area for storm watchers as it is considered far enough away to enjoy the storm but still see it close-up. It also contains the Wickaninnish Centre, which is a learning centre that teaches visitors all about the Pacific Rim. Although this part of the beach seems to be littered with driftwood, this beach is well-known for its beautiful sandy stretches which offers visitors a scenic coastal view year round.
