An Oral Story of Thetis Lake
Many years ago at Thetis Lake (View Royal, Greater Victoria) there were teenage girls (or possibly young women in their 20s) in the water. I was sitting at the end of the peninsula-like outcropping Blissfully unaware of how well sound travelled in the water they got into a conversation about giving their boyfriends… a certain sexual act involving blowing (to hint at the term they used) while their boyfriends were driving. Due to the water’s power to carry sound, I heard every word they said without any effort. This talk went on a little bit and then one said, “We’d better be quiet now. We’re getting close to shore.” I am actually quite proud of the fact that I managed to keep a complete poker face and lot let on that I, and probably others in the area, had heard every word.
