The next hike will be on Saturday, 10th March.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.
Last week we drove part way along the High Road towards Van Anda and parked just after the last house on the right. We had really nice weather again and it was quite warm and sunny when we sat down on the bluffs on the west side of the Pocahontas ridge.
In connection with the Texada Official Community Plan update a workshop is being held this Saturday. The hike will end in time for hikers to get to the hall for the event.

Doors open at 1:30pm. Workshop runs from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
My photo this week is a view of the Lafarge Quarry and the more distant Surprise Mountain with the mountains of Vancouver Island in the background. There will be the usual beach barbecue and potluck again this year and I will have more details about that next time.
