PoCo July 23, 2016

Saturday:  Mike Farnworth – I want to thank everyone for their kind wishes on my Birthday, it was much appreciated. In case you were wondering what I did today, I was out for a Birthday walk on the dyke at Colony farm. I heard what I though was a bike behind me, I turned around it was this guy walking behind me about twenty feet. I walked slowly backwards he kept walking towards me, I kept walking backwards, then he turned walked down the bank of the dyke into the salmonberries. Quite the sight, it’s an amazing province we live in.
