Roberts Memorial Provincial Park


In our final Ladysmith vlog (for now) we visit the stunning geological features at Roberts Memorial Provincial Park. This park has incredible sandstone ledges that you may have also seen us feature in our vlogs when we visited Hornby Island.

Hornby Island Vlogs:

The sandstone ledges make you feel like you have been transformed to another planet. My imagination takes me to the moon.These sandstone ledges represent ancient sea beds. Apparently the Steller and California sea lions will pull themselves out of the Stewart Channel to sunbathe on the sandstones during the summer months. We did not see any sea lions on the sand stones the day we were there, but we were exploring the geological features in the early evening. We did see a Steller Sea Lion in the ocean.

This was a super easy 1 km hike from our car through a beautiful mature forest to the sandstone beach. The park was donated to the province of BC by May Vaughan Roberts in memory of her husband and daughter.

Tim and I hope you have enjoyed the Ladysmith vlogs. Thanks for pressing that thumbs up button, subscribing to our channel and leaving your comments.
