Charters Creek

This weekend I went for a walk in the rain, then sun, then rain… It seemed like the weather was changing every ten minutes, but that’s not unusual for this time of year on Vancouver Island.  Not far away from many of the other sites I’ve been to, there’s The Juan de Fuca Salmon Restoration Society, which is located at Charters Creek.  There is a nice trail that runs nearby on a mini-islan of land surrounded by the creek.  The creek is lined with moss covered trees, like many of the trails are around here.

The Glitch

I apologize if anyone had trouble finding the blog posts earlier today.  There was some sort of glitch that caused the page to be blank.  I believe the issue has been rectified and look forward to a new post soon.  In the mean time, I guess you really do have to crack a few eggs to make an omelette. 😉


A Walk in the Woods

One of the great things about living on southern Vancouver Island is that there are so many fantastic places to go for a walk or hike and its easy to branch off and see something different from the last visit to the area.  This most recent hike, being on Easter Sunday, there were many people out enjoying a sunny day near the Sooke Potholes.  Instead of going to the Sooke River, I branched off on the trail that runs next to Mary Vine Creek.
