Directions to Hartwood’s Ithra

Whether coming from Vancouver or Victoria, one heads toward
Courtenay, on the Island Highjway. No matter what route is taken,
once past Nanaimo city limits, stay on the highway until reaching
Nanoose Bay. Get into the left lane. Obey the 60 kmh speed limit
signs, both because the area is often patrolled and because you’ll be
turning left.

Continue past the only traffic light (just after the first
bridge), but be ready to turn left at Morello Road – BEFORE crossing
the second bridge. SCA signs will be posted.

If you find yourself going up a long hill, you missed the turn.

If coming from the northern reaches of the Island, head toward
Nanaimo, through Parksville. When going down the long hill, obey the
60 kmh speed signs, because the Morello Road right-hand turn is just
across the first bridge. SCA signs will be posted.

Go a short block down Morello Rd. and turn right onto Alcott Rd.
at the large playing field, where SCA signs will be posted. Go about
100 metres and turn left, into the school property. If cars are
parked in the field, when you arrive, pick your spot there.

juice and hot chocolate, and muffins.
