Wading and swimming in the Puntledge river has become a favourite place to take our guests since we came across it when the Grand sons were visiting.  Quite a different experience than you would expect from the vision of wading in a river.  The Puntledge flows rapidly down from Comox lake across bedrock that is pocked with holes and rapids and mini falls. 

There is a long stretch where the water spreads across a wide space that allows you to wade in ankle-deep water (avoiding the deeper holes) to see spectacular scenery. 

We took the girls there yesterday and they loved it as did Lois last week and the boys last month.  The water level was down from previous trips so we were able to venture further down stream.  A lovely day that will likely be repeated later in the week
