Day 2.1...dusty bottoms

Now our trip really began, as far as I was concerned. Mileage-wise it wasn't too ambitious, if we were taking asphalt roads, but this day involved a bunch of dirt, albeit pretty smooth.

The plan:

A quick Starbucks stop and we head out of Victoria...stopping to enjoy the vistas

Take some photos and...

...admire my fine packing job that Ben likened to being performed by gypsies.

And then more gas and...

...a Lake Cowichan grocer to pick up some sandwiches for later.

But it's always good to take a moment to assure the wives that we're AOK.

Then into the woods...

Lakeside photo-op

I present to you...TREES!

We came to a fork in the road..."Which way?"

Ok, fine, we'll go that way. Getting a bit dusty by this point in the trip.

Our intended route had this sign tacked up...

Nope, no way through.

Well, it's a good excuse to stop for lunch. This place looked pretty good.

So I called Jeff over...

...who didn't handle the uneven rocks near the lake very well.

But not to worry, Ben was there with his camera...

As was I...

But enough shenanigans, Lunch time. I was so thirsty I drank a LOT of that water.
