Men's Walking Group

Somewhat damp today - but what the heck, we won't melt.  So nine of us ventured out into the rain for a walk down to the Bamberton-Haul Road behind the Legion.  About 6 Km later we figured it was time to warm up with a coffee.  So up to Shawnigan Coffee House where we took our coffee across the street to enjoy.  Map and photos follow.  --  DeNNis.

Parked the cars at the Legion (bottom right).  Down the trail to the Bamberton-Haul Road where we walked until we were pretty well soaked, then backup to the Legion.

  What a mess of bush piles etcetera behind the Legion due to the clear cutting.

Consequently it took us a bit of searching to find the trail.

Eventually we were succesful.

It sure looks like autumn.

When we get down to where the horses usually are they seem
to be missing.

After a bit, the one we call "Big Red" wanders out of the barn
and his owner shows up at the window.  In conversation with her
we learn that t"Big Red" is his given name and that he comes
from a breed of Canadian horses that are very powerful animals.

Then it is off down the road in the rain.

We come across a couple
of old gate posts on either
side of the road.

The white spot about halfway down
is a rock that Rick brought from his
garage, painted by his wife.

We are pretty well soaked by this time.

We stop to check out an old teepee frame that has been here
for some years.

At that point we decide we are wet enough and need a cup of  java.

On the way back we notice that some poor soul has lost his "soul."
