Saltspring or Salt Spring Island was named for its salt springs, which was one of the only things the group of 15 North Shore hikers didn’t see on Mighty Lesley’s non-stop adventure, in non-stop sunlight.
Seriously the group swam two lakes: Stowell Lake (named after Mr. Stowe), Cushin lake (after John Ducie Cusheon) and the ocean at Wellbury Bay (after residence of William E. Scott).
They hiked three micro-hikes at Reginald Hill, Ruckle Park and Peter Arnell Park where they appreciated arbutus trees, groves of Garry Oak, ate Miner’s Leaves and disturbed a group of turkeys.
The biking took the group from Fulford Harbour to Ruckle Park to Long Harbour with a detour to Saltspring Cheese, which couldn’t have been done without our support team Lynne and Rick.
This was done in 28 hours including sleep. What a great two days. How to keep up with Leslie?
