We were six hikers, one of them a new not-yet member and one of them a new member on her first hike. We had wonderful sunshine from 11 am onwards. The route took us through forest trails, on small roads and eventually to the beach, Taylor Bay at Twin Beaches Provincial Park, where we had lunch. Two opted to go back to the ferry and the rest hiked to the Malaspina Galleries and from there to the Haven. At 3 pm there was a concert of Handel’s Messiah. One of us participated in the choir and the remaining three were in the audience. Everyone went home afterwards and we agreed that we had a pleasant day.
