Ten of us did Wilkinson Rd today with a change in our usual route. We investigated the very beginning of a 12 home development off of Horton Rd, then behind Sunset Maples (Brulette Pl) and behind Frances Kelsey School continuing on the trail along Shawnigan Creek back to our vehicles. Wonderful weather, great company and good coffee at Shawnigan Coffee House afterwards. About 7 Kms stroll. -- DeNNis.
|Started and finished behind Kerry Park Rec Center (Bottom-right). Clockwise loop from that point.
|Wilkinson Rd - Quiet pastoral farm land. Not as many animals as we used to see.
|Junction of Wilkinson and Cobble Hill - which way from here? Down past
George Bonner School to Petrocan and Horton Rd.
|George Bonner School.
|Frances Kelsey School. -- Note of interest.: - Frances Kelsey was instrumental
in banning the use of Thlaidomide (which caused birth defects). She just celebrated
her 100th birthday a few weeks ago.

Not much water flowing - need more
rain soon - lots of it.
