We stayed for four days with our friend Laila, who has a fabulous house in Victoria, Vancouver.
On the first morning we went for a "stroll" on Horth Head, which was practically on her back doorstep.
If I lived so close to such a fabulous place, I'd be way fitter than I am!!!
Half way up the ascent we asked Laila
"Is it safe to go walking here?"
Laila shrugged and said
"It's fine. There's the odd sighting of a cougar, but not recently."
We stopped in our tracks. We had been concerned about the presence of muggers, rapists or serial killers, you know, the usual worries. We never thought of COUGARS!
Oh sh*t! Where are Zuma and Rubble when you need them!
Maybe the walk to Raharney isn't so bad after all!
