This area has been chosen for the variety of tiny ground plants. Careful looking will reveal the following: Coral and other lichen, coral fungi, insectivorous sundews, sphagnum moss, spikemoss and other mosses, and depending on the season up to a dozen orchids: greenhoods, sun orchids, spider orchids, flying duck orchids, gnat orchids.
The classic conical peak across the bay is Adamsons Peak – the Cow and Calf – and if the weather plays right, it can be draped in snow. In the bay below mussel buoys dot the water, supporting long lines inpregnated with mussel spore.
This little valley is now a rarity: an extensive wetland with both its hydrology and plants still in tact.
