Went for a hike on the weekend at Goldstream Park. It’s only about a 20 minute drive from Victoria but for some reason I’ve only been there half a dozen times in the 25 years I’ve lived here. Weird. I need to spend more time here – It’s a really special place…
I love the drive up to Goldstream. A lot of people don’t like the windy roads of the Malahat but I love it …
Let me tell you a little something about Fergus. He LOVES to go hiking. He’s only 13lbs and is the size of a cat but this little doggie can hike like a mountain goat.
He never gets tired. He loves to explore every nook and cranny … and he loves to pee on EVERYTHING! Including children – so keep away from his crotch if you’re under 8 years old. It’s a dominance thing.
The whole time we were walking around the park – I felt like I was in The Walking Dead. I kept expecting to see a zombie stuck in the mud that we could poke with a stick.
We did find the abandoned Gold Mine where The Smoke Monster from Lost lives. Just kidding. Everyone knows it lives in Hawaii.
Gerry was SO scared to go look inside but Fergus just trotted in there without a care in the world. Yikes! FERGUS!! It’s good to be a little tentative sometimes.
On the way home we stopped at the grocery store to grab some ingredients for dinner. I noticed these apples in a plastic box called Grapple.
Um.. What? This is an apple that tastes like a grape?
I took a good look at it. I don’t know about you but I don’t think that fresh fruit should A) come in a plastic container and B) come with an ingredients list. Yikes.
