Calm Between Storms

The past week has been quite rainy and stormy. The clouds broke and the sun came through this morning, however – a respite before another storm system is forecast to hit this evening.

I went out to the beach and walked to Hungry Point and back. Click on image below to view the album.

A couple of Sundays ago I attended a mushroom workshop where we learned to identify a few of the easily identified edible mushrooms in the area. I’ve gone out since and collected some of them.

Winter Chanterelles

Angel Wing Mushrooms

Hedgehog Mushroom

The Winter Chanterelles are fairly plentiful nearby. On the trail I use, I’ve only seen the Angel Wings in three locations. I happened to stumble across the Hedgehog along the path.

There are real Chanterelles on the island – just farther away and I have to find them. There are also supposed to be larger Hedgehogs also, but again, requires a longer drive.
