We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
Last week we had extra strong winds blowing over much of the island and decided to stick to open areas on the hike as much as possible. That meant the gasline right of way would be OK as well as roads that were extra wide to keep us away from falling branches. So we headed south past the Hydro Reactor Station junction and parked on the next gasline road crossing. It was quite pleasant walking south and even climbing one of the steepest section of the line was not too bad in dry conditions. By lunchtime we had reached Bobs Lake campground and so stopped there for a while. For the return to the vehicles we used the new shoreline trail instead of the roads to reach the north end of the lake and I found that very interesting as it gives the walker some different and very attractive views of the lake. When I tried to capture the scene my camera told me I had forgotten to replace the memory chip so I have no new photos of it yet.
I do have a water view for this week, but this is the sea and the location is Anderson Bay which we visited in the recent mid-week hike to the South Texada Provincial Park.
