North Shore Mountains, B.C.

Excerpt from New York Times article:
"Averaging upward of 2,400 hours of sunny skies a year, this idyllic area is dotted with scenic restaurants, quaint cafes and arty shops. Kayakers will find marine life galore including phosphorescent plankton that glow during moonlight paddles. Sunbathers will find long stretches of sandy beaches, lagoons and tidal pools."  (June 2008)

The Sunshine Coast ( is made up of a number of coastal communities stretching along Highway101 from the ferry terminal at Langdale to the ferry terminal at Earl’s Cove. Each community has its own character and charm. Gibsons, with the spectacular view of the coastal mountains, is the first stop and the most accessible to Vancouver.  Lower Gibsons, often referred to as Gibsons Landing, was the home of the long running CBC program “The Beachcombers”.  To this day it retains much of the character of that show with its working fishing boats in the harbour and yes, still some active beachcombers.

Roberts Creek Sunshine Coast, B.C.
The Beautiful Sunshine Coast!

The Sunshine Coast is home to many fine artists and artisans and the shops in Gibsons Landing display these local arts and crafts. Restaurants offer a variety of dining delights from snacks to fine dining. Although we live in a rainforest, the summer brings endless days of sunshine with warm but rarely uncomfortably hot temperatures. In spring a visitor could golf or kayak, dive or ski all on the same day.  In winter the mountains provide a playground for those wishing to cross-country ski, snowshoe or toboggan.  Equipment rentals are available on the Coast.

The proximity to Vancouver makes it an ideal weekend getaway.  For more information on the Sunshine Coast:
