Eight walkers did the Cowichan Bay dike and estuary
starting from Maple Grove Park.There are many large
cornfields in this area.Some of the cattle corn is eight
feet in height.We watched a powered paraglider that
approached us from the Duncan area,over the estuary,
and towards Mt. Tzouhalem.The pilot wears a para-
motor on his back.They fly between 25 and 70 km/h.
Most flying is done under 500ft but they can go much
higher.Paragliders are very dangerous in winds or any
turbulence.It takes a 10ft run for the inflated wing to
lift the motor and pilot.For next monday Vera has
invited us to walk the trails near her home,then return
to the lake cottage for a coffee.If you wish you are
welcome to go for a swim, so bring your bikini.
Meet at the Legion at 9:30 am. V.M.
