Santa came early to our Young Seniors.
|OH! She's been extra nice this year.|
|Parked at the Legion. Did a clockwise loop from behind the Legion down Bamberton-Haul Rd and retraced our path part way back as shown. Then on down to where the horses were and back to the Legion on a different path.|
|The sign at the Legion.|
|Looking over to the Legion from the far side of the clearcut.|
|Seen in passing.|
|A bridge over soggy water.|
|This stump has an ever-changing array of stones with|
|Part of some very old "mountain bike challenges."|
|More of the same.|
|Quite an interesting trail.|
Down under the power-line onto Bamberton-Haul road.
|Some of the group just going onto Bamberton-Haul road.|
|An old teepee frame marks the|
spot where we head up to where
there used to be some huge tires.
|Up past a couple of the tires.|
|Ice covering some puddles here.|
|A strange sight just behind where the old tires lay. a viewing|
platform with some old life vests on a small algae covered pond.
Scared up a few ducks feeding here.
|Met this guy along the way. He|
made the tool he is carrying
which he uses to make trails.
He has created quite a few of
the trails we use.
|And his buddies.|
|Brook knew he would like some carrots.|
Strange place for this sign.
|This Christmas tree has seen better days.|
There should be photos of it some where
in the archives.
|Shopping for car parts.|
|What is that down by the left corner post of the Legion entrance??|
|Well! Bless my soul - another mystery rock.|
|Parked on Deloume Rd above Tim Hortons. Headed up past what used to be Lions Cove, across the old Stone Bridge towards Kelsey School, behind Sunset Maples townhouses, along Horton Rd, down past Petrocan to Church Way where we went down Welch Rd to the beach. Then past the Old Church Museum and Brentwood College finishing up at Tim Hortons for a well deserved coffee break.|
|Heading towards Lions Cove and the old Stone Bridge.|
|Found a good "fixer upper" bike on the way.|
|Shawnigan Creek below the old Stone Bridge.|
|The old Stone Bridge looking as good as ever.|
|Traffic coming out of Kelsey School.|
|Including a "Murder" of crows.|
|Notice the steam rising from the roofs due to the frost and|
one degree temperature. At least the sunshine had something
to do with it.
|Looking up Hayden Rd off of Horton Rd.|
Spotted these guys along Horton Road.
|The Sweet Meadows Farm Stand on Church Way.|
|In a field on Church Way.|
|A very long (obviously expensive) fence on Welch Road.|
|A long stairway down to the beach at|
the bottom of Welch Rd.
|The view from the beach at the bottom of Welch Rd.|
|Some people heading to a warmer climate???|
|The old "Church-Museum" above the highway.|
|We spotted something in the rocks beside the hydrant here.|
|Can you believe it????|
|Mill Bay Masonic Lodge.|
|The final stop for todays walk!|
