Men's Walking Group

Nine of us walked 9Km around the Gorge and Portage Park followed by lunch at the 4 Mile Pub.   Next week will be an interesting stroll on Butler Road West Shawnigan Lake. --  Brook

Great walk around the Gorge Waterway today.  Brook has obviously found the good weather touch.  Below is my map and a few of the many photos that I took.  --  DeNNis.

Parked in the Canadian Tire parking lot (in blue print -- a couple inches right of the top left corner).  Did a clockwise loop around the Gorge Waterway.  Then down Esquimalt Rd a ways to a new trail which took us up through Portage Park to (of all places) the Four Mile Pub.  After we quenched our thirst and hunger pangs, it was back down the Old Island Highway to our vehicles.
Only a couple of Herring fishermen out today.

They obviously got their kicks on ROUTE 66.

Where are we now?

Topping up for the 2(?) Km trek back to our vehicles.
