The Malahat by Lori Treloar, Curator
My family was fortunate enough to have a summer cottage at Shawnigan Lake. Therefore, for as long as I can remember, the trip between Victoria and Shawnigan has been a part of my life. When my husband and I made the decision to live permanently at the lake there was great anticipation for leaving behind the frustration of city driving and embracing the pace of rural life. After all, the largest intersection around is the four way stop in the village.
