March 23rd 2012, Frank Mitchells Farm

Hi Everyone. The Alfrescoes next location will be at Frank Mitchell's Farm: 530 Witty Beach Road in Metchosin. Frank says there are lots of baby lambs to paint among other things.



On the farm visit, it may be worth mentioning, for those who have not previously been to the farm, that there is parking in the field beyond the house. Folks are welcome to wander around (30 acres, including couple of ponds, fields, forest plantation, barns, orchard, sea views.....) There are facilities. Will try to rustle up coffee and cookies for look and tell at the house. 
Main rule: keep gates closed (animals in)



For those with GPS the postal code is V9C 4H8

March 16th, 2012, Anderson Hill

Hi Everyone, Our next paint out will be:


 Anderson Hill in Oak Bay.  Situated at the junction of Island Road and Newport.
Close to the entry gate there is only sufficient space for about 10 cars.  If all spaces are taken when you arrive, move down to Newport, park there and make a short walk back.  Island Road is too narrow to park on the approach.
This hill offers stunted oaks, rocks and wild plants.  View of the Trial Islands or,looking across one of the golf club fairways, a view of the southern gulf islands

Sorry, no facilities at this location.
