EMBRACE THE MOONLIGHT

Brought back by popular demand…and nature!

Good Friday, April 3, 2015 7:00 pm

A MONTHLY, 1 HOUR EVENING STROLL IN OAK BAY

TO CELEBRATE SPRING BLOSSOMS IN TWILIGHT

We start and end at the Monterey Recreation Centre, 1442 Monterey.

We’ll have 2 routes at 2 paces (gentle or energetic, your choice), both featuring the spring wildflowers of Brighton Walkway and the Native Plant Garden Park.

Embrace the Night walks 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 third walk of the second year on Friday, April 3, 2015, we’ll start out early again, to catch the sight and fragrance of blossoms by twilight, while hoping to catch a beautiful moonrise and sunset along the way.

We will start our walk at 7:00 PM from the Monterey Recreation Centre.

This time, we’ll have two routes at two paces (gentle or energetic, your choice).  Both will feature viewing of the many spring, native wildflowers (Fawn lilies, Shooting stars, Camas and Buttercup, etc.) along the Brighton Walkway and throughout the Native Plant Garden Park on Beach Drive.  The energetic group will also enjoy the stunning views from Anderson Hill Park.

Come out and enjoy the beautiful green space and parks of Oak Bay, mixed with healthy exercise and meeting and talking with new friends.  This is an age- and family-friendly event; everyone is welcome.

Starting Time and Location:

Friday, April 3 at 7:00 pm at the Monterey Recreation Centre, 1442 Monterey

The Route:

Along the Brighton Walkway (Centennial Trail) to the Native Plant Garden Park and return

The Purpose:

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

Finishing Time and Location:      Back to our start about 8:00 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…..
