Our address is 3817 Duke Road in Metchosin (more sheep than people) , near Victoria, British Columbia, Canada V9C 4B2. It is about a 1/2 hour drive from Victoria (in non-rush hours).
From Victoria take Highway #1 north, and the Colwood exit #12. You are on 1-A and on Sooke Road. Continue to follow Sooke Road, past Colwood Corners (London Drugs & Thrifty Foods), continue past Royal Roads University, turn left on Metchosin Road, go completely through the large gravel pit on Metchosin Road and turn left onto Duke Road, then down by the water, watch for our sign “Apples” or “Juice” on the water side.
Alternately, take Highway #1 north, exit to Langford exit #14 which puts you on Millstream Road or Veteran’s Memorial Parkway (south). Follow the parkway past the Westshore Shopping Centre (Canadian Tire, Save-on-Foods, Wal-mart) until the parkway ends abruptly at a “T” intersection. You can’t miss this as there is a rather imposing rock cliff facing you. Turn left, then right at the next “T” intersection and you are on Metchosin Road. When completely through the large gravel pit, turn left onto Duke Road, then down by the water at 3817 Duke Road.
We y keep the tall, wrought-iron gate closed but turn in, lean out your car window and push the button on a post. But PLEASE, don’t let any passing deer see you using the button which opens the gate. We hope they never learn!! The gate will close behind you; you can open it again when leaving by pushing another button on a post on your left.
We now have only one cat, Piper (white, siamese). If nearby, he is very friendly and would appreciate a pat or two. But please make sure he isn’t visiting inside your car when you drive away.
