It was a great day for the 9 of us to walk the 9Km crossing Shawnigan Creek in 4 different locations. Stopped at a farm on Wilkinson Road to view a crop of Elderberries covered by netting as last year a flock of starlings devoured the crop of berries. Next week will be a visit to Cobble Hill mountain to take the easy route to the summit followed by lunch at the Cobblestone Pub. -- Brook
"No rain Monday again."
Great weather for what Brook calls the "modified Wilkinson Rd walk."
Lots of photos - here are just some of them. --- DeNNis.
|Parked behind Tim Hortons (right side near top). Follow the "Yellow Brick Road" counter -clockwise from there. Hopefully it is fairly self explanatory.|
The Stone Bridge - about half way between Tim Hortons and
Shawnigan-Mill Bay Rd. Lots of moss growing on it.
Shawnigan Creek below bridge on Shawnigan Mill Bay Rd.
Very little water in there at this time.

The fish catching area on Shawnigan Creek near Brentwood

Plenty of exercise for one day.
