For the field trip we are going to leave our island and join up with the  Gabriola Photo Club to explore Gabriola Island.  For those of you who would like to we can walk on the ferry and meet up with our host on the other side. Others who want to drive are able to do that and once off the ferry can and follow one of our host cars.   They are going to take us to the beaches and do a circle route of the island.  We would like to have lunch or a snack on a beach (weather permitting) – bring your own snacks.  Lunch will be between 3- 5 and then back on the 5;50 pm ferry

I would suggest that we car pool to the ferry for easier parking.  I am trying to get London drugs to give us some of their spots so they don’t object to  us spending the day.

Lunch will be confirmed later – it will either be at one of two restaurants on Gabriola or we will chip in $5.00 each and one of our hosts has offered to provide the food at her home

This event will be rain or shine so watch the weather.  You may want to bring rain gear

The costs will include: walk on ferry= 9.70 each way  Total 19.40

Car if you want to take your own  = 22.70

Lunch if not in a restaurant = 5.oo

I think this should be lots of fun

DECEMBER FIELD TRIP
Dec 15 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Photo is from the Milner Garden website

 

Our next field trip is going to be a little different and will be in the evening.  We will be going to the family festival of lights and music in Milner Gardens on Sunday Dec 15th.  The time with Oceanside Photographers will be from 5pm til 6:30pm  but you are welcome to stay longer.  The grounds close at 8:30.  You can walk through the trails that have lots of lights on them.  If you want to go inside there is the Teddy Bear Cottage, the gift shop and the tea room each with their own specialty.  There is Santa’s den but I am not sure if that is inside or out.

The cost for this event is by donation but they suggest $5.00

Bring your tripods and enjoy some incredible Christmas lights.

This should be a fun time with some very beautiful lights

JANUARY FIELD TRIP
Jan 19 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Many of you have asked to go to this local distillery and now here is your chance. It was established in 2011and is located on 380 acres in Oyster River (near Campbell River) We will be meeting with the staff for photographic tour of the facility and farm. They will be touring us through the farm in vehicles with lots of photographic stops. It is going to be a fabulous day. Because of distance I will have car pooling sheets available at the next meeting

It should be a lot of fun as we have the entire place to ourselves except for staff

Lunch location is the Driftwood Restaurant at noon- 1329 S Island Highway . It is only 2.8 km from the distillery.

There is also a ‘People’s Choice’ award. Photo Salon is hosted by the Harbour City Photography Club in Nanaimo and is endorsed by the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA), the prime photography group in Canada.
