The Sunshine Coast is one of the most beautiful and least known areas of Canada. It’s most commonly accessed by BC Ferries service from Horseshoe Bay, which is about a 25-minute drive north of Vancouver on the Sea-to-Sky Highway. The setting for the CBC TV series “The Beachcombers,” which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, the Sunshine Coast is loaded with B&Bs, seafood restaurants and magnificent west coast scenery.
Robin J. Elliott of Vancouver recently made the trip for a relaxing getaway and took this splendid photograph of the coastline along the shores of the Georgia Strait in Gibsons, a town with a population of 4,200.
Robin says, “My wife, Rika, and I had the pleasure of staying three nights at the Waterfront Hideaway B&B in Gibsons — this was part of the beautiful view, changing every day with the weather. Lots of interesting water activity, a tranquil place where we could relax and read and enjoy nature. We were greeted on our arrival by three deer!”
