Embrace the Night started on Valentine’s night just over a year ago. We grew from a modest dozen participants to as many as 70+ during the summer Super Moons.

For our second walk of the second year on Thursday, March 5, 2015, we’ll start out early again, to catch the sight and fragrance of blossoms by twilight, while hoping to catch a beautiful sunset at our turn around point at McNeill Bay (Chikawich).

We will start our walk by the “Salish Sea” sculpture of local First Nations artist, Chris Paul, at the south end of the Oak Bay Marina parking lot off Beach Drive, at the foot of Currie Road.

Our route will be familiar to many of you: we will head south along Beach Drive, check out the Native Plant Garden across from the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, catching the Sunset at Kitty Islet and back to the Marina, all the while mingling and meeting new friends.

Starting Time and Location:

Thursday, March 5 at 5:30 pm at the Oak Bay Marina Parking Lot

The Route:

South from the Marina Parking lot, along Beach Drive, stopping at McNeil Bay (Chikawich) and then back.

The Purpose:

To walk in the twilight with great company, enjoy the health benefits and (fingers crossed) catch a beautiful sunset.

Finishing Time and Location:

Back to our start a little after 6:30 pm.

Note: Personal reflectors will be handed out. Please wear comfortable footwear and hope for the best but prepare for worse, weather wise. We know you’ll have fun…..
