The next hike will be on Saturday, 4th June.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
It looks as if we are going to have a warm sunny day for the hike this week. Last week we were not so lucky and had another one of those days when it rains more or less continuously. We kept the hike quite short and avoided any kind of trail with high grass or low bushes to stay as dry as possible. We did have a dry spot for lunch but with a view over a gray sea under a gray sky there was nothing very exciting to see.
My photo this time is one I took on a hike we did on a much brighter day earlier this year. Much of the southern end of Texada is rugged and more or less uninhabited land, but with often the most impressive scenery. We were on rocky bluff looking south over the narrow Sabine Channel that separates Texada from Lasqueti Island. This is about the most narrow part and it would be interesting to be here late on a summer day when the cruise ships head through on their way north to Alaska. The highest point on Texada, Mount Shepherd, is just out of the picture on the left.
