Nine of us got together today for a walk through Manley Park and along the beach below Satellite Park Road. We covered about 7 Km plus a little extra before we had lunch at the refurbished Cobblestone Pub. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|We start at Manley Creek Park.|
|One of Natures Planters.|

|Looking back towards Samsom Narrows.|
|Another "Natures Planter".|
|Some bank reinforcement cutting off a stairway to the beach.|
|We think this is a "Nunnery" on Saltspring Island. The camera zoom just won't do it justice.|
|The stairway from the beach up to Satellite Point Road.|
|Had to add this|
|The reservoir in Manley Park is full - but the water exit is closed.|
|While waiting for the Cobblestone Pub to open for lunch, we|
had to walk up and take some apples for the horses at
Alpine Riding Stables.
|And say "Hello" to the Llama.|
|Time for some lunch and a beverage -- we were joined by Bill Cairnes --|
