Another brisk day for the 6 of us to trek 5Km through the bush trails behind the Legion followed by coffee at Shawnigan House. Next week will be an easy walk around the lower level of the quarry followed by our Christmas luncheon at the Cobblestone Pub. --- Brook
The hardier members of the group braved the wintery weather this morning to do a little shorter walk down behind the Legion. Below are a few photos and a map complements of Brook. --- DeNNis.
|We did a clockwise loop from the Legion, down the trail to the Bamberton-Haul road, then a narrow trail through the bush back up to the Legion..

|Looking north - not quite so bright.
|Bambi was obviously in the neighborhood.
|Another nature show.
