Saturday morning walk on the WestSong walkway

The BEST thing about living on Vancouver Island is that there is always somewhere lovely to walk.  Victoria and the surrounding communities take walking seriously have a network of walking trails and paths.  I am very lucky because less than a 1 minute walk from my house is the WestSong Walkway which stretches from West Bay harbour to Victoria's Inner harbour.  It is a great walk and I can usually walk my portion of the walkway in about 45-50 minutes.  PupZilla however is not quite ready for such a long distance, so we go for about 30 minutes tops.  Today it was unseasonably warm and we have been getting a lot of rain and it definitely does not feel like December.  Hello global warming.  Over the last few years I have noticed the trend of October, November, and December being relatively mild and then along comes January, February, and March and that seems to be when we are getting winter.  Today we actually had a little sun, so I took Pupzilla out for a good walk and she is snoozing in the livingroom with Scooterpie Jr right now.  YAY walkies!!!!! 








She is cute and she knows it, she looks angelic doesn't she? Don't let the cute puppy exterior fool you, she is PUPZILLA, the 8 pound fluffy ball of terror.



Flowers in winter.

Ally - it was on my iphone too. I take more pictures than I post and a lot go into the g-file.

Love the post and the mushrooms.

It is a blessing to have walking trails close at hand.

Dar is that the walkway that runs from the Empress and goes along to the fish n chip shack (Barb's ?)?

What a lovely walk, Dar. Great pics!

Pam, Keith, Sonja and David -THANKS!

David this is the walkway on the opposite side of the Harbour on the Esquimalt side. It does connect up, you could walk the whole Harbour. Unfortunately PupZilla's legs aren't long enough for the trip. I am literally steps away from the walkway.

I thought my favorite picture was going to be the mushrooms growing out of the post.....then I saw the one of Pupzilla and have to say it is my favorite. So stinkin' cute.

I am glad you are so close to walking trails. Sure makes getting out of the house a little easier - when the weather (and motivation) cooperates.

Nice to have such a nice walking path nearby. It really does make it easier to get out even if the weather is less than optimal.

How did your previous post go from "Grand Duchess Roo" to today's post of "Pupzilla"? Is she a bit of a terror today?
Thanks for sharing, maybe we'll go for a walk today too... maybe.

I was thinking the same as Troubadour, how did the big change happen?

You live in such a beautiful part of the world thanks for showing it too us with such wonderful photos.
