>Before I go back to sea tomorrow, I would like to leave you with some pictures of my camping trip.
I was so glad to have caught the tail end of summer, to take advantage of the sun and swimming, my favourite activity. Well, almost. Don’t get your mind spinning, my favourite activity is only this:
I’d like to think that in school, I was the neighbourhood champion of log burling. I even once defeated a big kid, who claimed to have been dropped on his head as a baby. Later I realized that, sadly, he was mentally handicapped. I saw him years later and he offered to give me a foot massage. Hmmm.
I just looked up Log Burling in Wiki and it is nowhere to be found. Well, it’s a logger sport, where two people stand on a log in water and try and roll each other off of the log by running on it. The first one to hit the water loses.
On Cowichan lake there is a Provincial Campground, and this is Gordon Bay. It’s my favourite for the lake swimming and those logs. The logs outline the swimming section of the beach, and have done for years. They twist and turn and it is a real challenge to walk the entire length of the logs and not get soaked!
There are legends about a lake monster here.
