It was a beautiful day for a hike and a memorable one as it coincided with the Provincial observance of the first Truth and Reconciliation day. Bob Zarichansky offered appropriate comments about the significance of this day as we all reflect on the consequences of historical colonial treatment of indigenous peoples.
We started from Lynn River Farm and headed west along the banks of the Avon River, accompanied for part of the way by the resident swan. Reaching Rd. 111, we took a snack break and headed to our starting point, 12 kilometres round trip. Back at Lynn River Farm, proprietor Lindsay had put on a pot of coffee, and we enjoyed treats from the delicious home-baked assortment of tasty wares.
