There are two very different worlds nearby, both easily explored in a single weekend.
And there is the the temperate rain forest.
The forest is so deep, so dark and green that walking through it one can imagine being a tiny fish making its way through deep water, looking up at the light...
...or perhaps down at the shallow ocean floor seeing the reflection of ripples.
Moss becomes kelp floating all around, as if in a dream.
Sap drips down like clear rain water.
There are reefs of old trees.
The shelf fungus is as brilliant and beautiful as coral.
The old forest and the deep green sea: thinking about them at the same time is like waking up in a strange bed, trying to figure out where you are, and concluding that it's all the same place.
