Between Colchester Village & Oxley

A special thanks to Ann Ducharme for the invite to her lovely property.  (Photo by Ann)  This beautiful wooded landscaped ravine will remind you of a fairy land.

We also wish to thank Ann​ for graciously opening her home to us.  You will be able to warm up, and use her washroom.  For those who are unable to take the cold you may paint in her dining room.

(Note:  give yourself time this is a 35 to 45 min drive from Windsor.)

The weather is cold, so you will need earmuffs, gloves.  Still bring a hat with a brim so the sun does not hurt your view.  This time of year I use a baseball cap.  Sunscreen is still suggested.  Dress in layers the weather is unpredictable.

Other things to consider. A folding chair, cushion or yoga mat if you wish to sit on the ground.
