Mount Doug Park, Nov 16 2012

Hello Alfrescoes, Our next paint out location will be at Mount Doug. This is an amazing place. It is the last place Emily Carr painted. She is reputed to have said the spirit was strong there.  It has beautiful trees and pathways. Light shimmering through leaves and branches. You can also walk down to the beach where it is strewn with driftwood washed into interesting shapes by the sea.
Here are the directions to get there:


At the top of Shelbourne St we find the two entrances to Mount Doug.  Don't drive up the hill.  Instead, drive on to the junction with Ash Road.  Just beyond that is the entry on your right, into a large parking area. 
 ( Of course, read the instructions the other way around if you drive in from the West ) 
Trees, a walk along a path to a view of a ravine or take the steps down to the beach.  There are washrooms.


See you there!

PS 

We will celebrate our year end at the Coast Collective with a pot luck. It will be in the upstairs studio beginning at noon after our paint out. Please consider a date: Dec 14th or 21st. 

I have a couple of art related items that someone might like. I will raffle them (free)at the potluck. If anyone else has anything they'd like to share in the same way just bring it along to the potluck.
