For two days we explored the Sunshine Coast, staying in Gibsons and then heading down to Sechelt.

We go there for camping, date nights, beach play, birthday celebrations and most recently on a girls fishing trip.  We made the night of it and decided to head out the day before to Harrison to enjoy dinner and a relaxing night in […]
