Seven of us walked a bit over 8 Km today on the Friendship Trail in Duncan, beginning near Walmart and finishing off with a tasty lunch at the CVI Pub in the Best Western Motel nearby. Bob Bennett dropped in to join us for lunch. A dribble of rain to start but clearing up part way through. A very enjoyable outing. -- DeNNis.
|Started and finished as shown near the top right corner of the map. Parked the cars in the Walmart parking lot and did a counter-clockwise loop as shown by the yellow trace. Then drove over to the CVI Pub for lunch.|
|Lots of wild daisies along the way.|
|Photo fuzzy but colourful.|
|Unique gate ends. Looks like the gates roll right through.|
|May be a good place for veggies.|
|Seen on a corner fence post of a --.|
|-- property across from the cemetary at the|
intersection of Drinkwater and Somenos.
|Columbines (we think).|
|We leave the streets and head down the Friendship trail (part|
of the Cowichan Valley Trail).
|Buttercups of some sort.|
|Excellent carving of an eagle on this deck.|
|We will just show the fence.|
|Growing with the grass and stuff (shown larger below).|
|Someone made very good use of their spare time.|
|The bridge across Bings Creek where these two trails meet.|
We turned left and followed Sherman Road down to the
highway where we got back onto the Friendship Trail.
|Back onto the Friendship Trail at the end of Sherman Rd.|
|Where a quail decided to avoid us.|
|Averill Creek bridge.|
|How someone got down to do the graffiti|
we cannot imagine.
|Lunch at the CVI Pub. (I accidentally put my camera into infra-red night shooting mode).|
