Day Trips



Rent a Scooter

Jer finds the solution to our one too few bike problem!  Mark, Jer and I had drove down to Farmer's Market to pick up a few of the things we had forgotten - beer, wine, sugar, beer and tomatoes.  (We also got some beer.)  While waiting for the beer store to open we walked around looking for things to do (not much other than bug the cows) and drinking slushies (at 9 in the morning).

The Dock

Ah - Magic Lake.  We cycled down here for lunch and a bit of a swim.  What a glorious color of green!  The lake had drifts of duck algae growing on top, and had a green cast through even the smallest amount of water.

David

To go in - or not, that is the Question.  David half answered it - half way in.

John

With water composing 73.8% of my body, I was only too happy to rejoin it.  I still wonder what I got covered in though!

Swim Back

And in lane 4 is fishface, followed closely by magic swimmer!  Once we'd had enough of swimming it was a quick swim back to the dock.

Nice Melons, Karen!

Bedwell Harbour

On Sunday we took a cycle ride to the other (South Pender) island and cycled down to Bedwell Harbour, a kind of a resort perched over the government docks.  The store their was having a end of summer sale (tourist season ended that weekend), so we got some paté cheap, and had crackers and cheese for lunch.
