Take a Hike

By Paul Bingham

Need help keeping that New Year's Resolution to be more physically active?  Like to walk?   Like company?  Then SPPC's All Weather Walkers may be just the group for you.

Our schedule of group walks for 2011 is now complete and can be found at thecalendar on the SPPC website or in the Sunday bulletin.  Walks are usually held on the first and third Saturday of each month, beginning  at 9:30 am.  A listing of the dates and locations of the 23 walks planned for the year is available from the church office.
      The next two walks  are:
January 22- Meet at the Bingham’s house (1903 Sandover Cr., North Saanich) walk south on the new trail from Dean Park to Saanichton, and return the same route.  Coffee will be at the Bingham's house after the walk.

February 8 – Meet at the Brentwood Bay ferry terminal at the foot of Verdier Ave
in Brentwood Bay.
We will walk north on the short oceanfront path beside Seahorses
Restaurant and then south around the bay to Port Royal Estates.
Coffee location to be decided
Everyone is welcome – we hope you will join us.

    This group has been active for 17 years and has a compendium of over 40 walks, including such favourites as Swan Lake/Galloping Goose, Elk Lake, Lochside Trail and the Saanich Centennial Trail, Coles Bay, Island View Beach, Cedar Hill Gold Course, Blenkinsop Trail and Brentwood Bay.  Allwalks are about an hour long and are followed by coffee at a convenient café or the home of one of the walkers.
    New walkers always welcome.  Join us for one walk or all of them.  Your body and your spirit will be refreshed.
