We had a good walk around Thetis Lake except for times
we thought we may be run down by some rather large
dogs. There appeared to be more dogs than people.There
have been some nice improvements since last summer.
A new bridge,railings,and a split-rail fence along the trails
We had lunch at the Six Mile Pub.Next monday July 2nd.
we will meet at the Legion at 9:30 am.to choose a walk.
Bring some ideas with you.   V.M.

Here are some of the pictures I took this morning. We had a great walk, starting from Manly Park. Thanks, Denis.

Once these caterpillars have eaten all the apple tree leaves, they go for the rocks!

Five walked to the Mill Bay ferry and back,about 6 K.
The rain held off and we enjoyed a nice brisk walk.
What we thought may have been an eagle from a
distance was something quite different. (see picture
below) Had our usual Legion coffee. Next monday
we may leave our local area if the weather co-operates.
Meet at the Legion at 9:30 am.      V.M.

A Heron watches us at the Mill Bay ferry dock

OH OH, we missed the ferry.

NOT a pretty face !

10 of us had an ossum bike ride today for our annual bike ride.From the Kinsol Trestle to the holt creek trestle near Duncan, We rode there about 15 k , then walked down to the Cowichan River and  had our lunch by the river bank. Then back 15 k, we stopped often to give our legs and other parts a break. ha . Good day and thanks to Bill for trucking our bikes down to the Kinsol Trestle. Next week we can walk Manle park and we plan on winding up our organized walking on the 9th July , Walking in Cobble Hill and ending up at the Cobblestone for Lunch. Tks C.U. next week.

Seven walked the trails of Bright Angel Park.We saw
some wildflowers and met a gentleman who had counted
trilliums,with a count of 800 ! He brings his companion
Brewster who is a large friendly canine.We then went on
to the "Constant Crave Coffee House" which is new to
the Koksilah Rd / TCHighway corner.A pleasant little
shop where we sat outdoors in the sunshine and had
our coffee.One suggestion for next mondays walk was
to the Mill Bay ferry, or? other ideas? Meeting at the
Legion at 9:am.  V.M.

A brief stop in the sunshine
