Men's Walking Group

Cool and clear weather.  Nice day for a walk along Wilkinson Rd.  Nine of us did about 7 to 8 Km.  Map and photos below.  --  DeNNis.

GPS slow to start.  We did a large clockwise loop from where we parked the cars on Deloume Rd above Tim Hortons (top right).

Lots of crocus starting to bloom just above Tim Hortons.

The old Stone Bridge.
Lots of water flowing in Shawnigan Creek.

Mill Bay Ambulance staion on Shawnigan-Mill Bay Road.

Sylvan Church and Frances Kelsey School.

From Shawnigan-Mill Bay Rd we take the path as soon as we
cross the bridge over Shawnigan Creek

Storm damage - you can see where the tree broke
off at the roots.

The rest of the tree reaches down to Shawnigan Creek.

Here we took the high road.

The creek is running very well.

A lone mushroom? toadstool?

Some geese off feeding in the field.

Our third crossing of Shawnigan Creek near Wilkinson Rd.

Monkey tree - these take a long time to
reach their full height.

It is obvious where the sun hasn't warmed the ground.

Always have to get a shot of this guy.

Extra large pulley if you need a lift.

Waiting to see when this old Arbutus is going to split.

Someday we will carry a can of white spray paint with us.

Curious deer way down in the field.

The old church beside the highway is now a Mill Bay
Heritage Museum.

Mt Baker makes an appearance today - thanks to the weather.

The Masons hall near Brentwood college.

Guess where we had coffee.
