Men's Walking Group

Excellent weather today.  Nine of us covered about 8 to 9 Km around the Ladysmith and Transfer Beach area.  Map and photos below.  --  DeNNis.

Parked the cars near the Fox & Hound Pub on High St. (center).  Follow the trace in a clockwise direction from there all the way around  and back to the Pub.

Dating from the early 1930's, this caterpillar tractor was used
in Crown Zellerbach's Ladysmith operation in the 30's and 40's.

Adapted from a Fordson Farm Tractor, this small donkey engine
was used in rail logging to build and repair bridges.  The Donkey's
size lent itself to being hauled on and off rail cars at work sites.

Log collection area.

Trespassing sea gull.

Some ups and downs along the trail.

Along a no longer used rail bed --

Past an old "boom boat", stone bench and gearbox --

and another trail up to the "Historic Townsite"  --

-- and down onto the Ladysmith Marina.  Such a lovely day and
look at all those masts.  Nobody out boating today??

Ocean cargo freighter lifeboat.

A couple Heritage vessels in a floating boathouse.

A "Chinese Junk' ??  --  or just junk!!

Buoy out of water.

Still a little ice on puddles.

Awaiting berths somewhere.

Entering Transfer Beach Park.

A good weather indicator.

And the kids playground was very busy.

Kayakers, too.

Looking down on Transfer Beach.

Under the highway to get back up to the Pub.
