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.
The trail leads all the way up to Peden Lake, but I took the branch off that stops at the Mary Vine Creek falls. On such a nice day it was inevitable that there were others at the falls, but without having to ask, another photographer offered the prime spot to view the falls where he was standing.
After a few photos I gave in to the pleas of my dog, who wanted to continue the walk, and we returned along the path we came. We couldn’t resist stopping on the way home, though, for a couple quick shots of a lone cow grazing along the fence line of a local farmer’s field.
