Great weather and a nice walk on the back nine of the Cowichan
Golf Course. We did take a wrong turn at one point but the golfers
didn't mind. It would be nice to walk the whole course one day but
there was mention of difficulties a group of ladies may have keeping
silent on the course,when necessary,for that length of time. Such
cheek ! Where would they get that idea ? Most of the walkers
did about three and one half miles and then back to the clubhouse
for lunch. Next mon March 11th we will walk part of the Trans
Canada Trail. Meet at the Legion at 10 am.   V.M.

Thanks Denis and Ken for providing transportation to Gold Stream Park today. It is interesting Denis, that you found a trail that had only uphills - how did you mange that?
Here are some pictures of the walk.
So here is the answer to spend seven years of free room and board.

Lots of water in Gold Stream right now.

Today's gang. Notice that Mike is a real fast mover.

A familiar site - Kinsol Trestle.
Another perfect Monday for an enjoyable outing.
The deer believed it.

Or maybe they thought that old blunderbuss was useless.

The paparazzi strike again.

I think they follow us and then make it look like they are going the other way.

Start and finish of walk - McGhee Creek Trestle.

I'm a bit late with my pack of pictures taken on our trip to Mt. Washington snow shoeing. Thanks a big lot Denis for organizing this great trip. This was a first for many of us to be on snow shoes, but we mastered the tchnique and had a lot of fun doing it. And of course we can't fprget the Chinese Buffet in Ladysmith on our way home.
A mountain with a funny bump.

The gangs all here and we are off.

Helen and Denis.

Was the Sasquatch here?

Good trail maps are provided-but you have to bend down to read them.

Great form Alice!

Chinese buffet - Good anytime.
