June 8 2012 Durrance Lake

Hi Everyone, Our next location will be at Durrance Lake. Here's a description of it from Alfrescoe Elfreda. Who researched it for us (Thanks Elfreda): And here's a google map with Durrance lake Map.

Melanie lost a 001 W&N watercolor brush at Woodwynn Farms. Please return it to her if you found it. 


Durrance Lake: un unmanicured Park with parking lot and bathrooms. A real typical west coast scenerio. Only one building -the bathroom. Lots of foliage, water, stumps, moss, rocks and cars in parking lot in hearily forested area. It is a lovely 25-30 minute walk around the lake on a rustic path. About 20-25 minutes out of Victoria (not as long as Woodwyn Farms)

Directions:
north on West Saanich Road
pass the Red Barn on the left
Take a left on Wallace Drive
take left on Willis Road (there is a sign on rt advertising Gowland Park)
take a rt on Durrance Close, Drive to end, parking in lot on left.
