Matheson Lake

Victoria's ocean beaches are popular in the summer but many are rocky rather than sandy and even in summer's heat the Pacific is cold. Many local residents prefer to swim in one of the many small lakes that can be found in the greater Victoria area. Here's one I've been visiting lately in the Westshore community of Metchosin. It's called Matheson Lake and lies in the Matheson Lake Regional Park.

The water looks really nice....and warm. Hardly anyone swims in the Pacific in Washington that I know of. Maybe in the summer down at Long Beach, maybe at Westport and Ocean Shores...but between the beach logs and rip currents, it's never advised. Plus it's wicked cold.

Very pretty. It reminds me of a lake in Algonquin Park.
