West Coast Tires is in a little cleared area, just off Sooke Road. They were flooded out and have since rebuilt their shop. The area I was shooting in was newly exposed rocks from the excavations. It is rich in all kinds of local plants. There were wild strawberries, the western bleeding heart, the miner's lettuce and so many interesting things, once I took the time to look at it.
We now have our new tires, newly done brakes, thanks to Ray, and we should be ready for our next road trip in the Dodge Lodge, towing the new old Model T, to Pincher Creek, Alta,
