Serious Nature On BC’s Sunshine Coast

 
Have you ever been to the Sunshine Coast of Canada? 

I have been going to the Sunshine Coast since I was a teenager and have always loved it. My friend Laura’s parents had a cabin in Sechelt and I have the fondest memories coming here with the girls, fishing, and relaxing. I love nature and the outdoors. When you meet me you may think of me as this urbanite who loves city life but I could easily set up shop in the woods or a tropical island with no other inhabitants. As I get older I find that I am gravitating towards more space and less crowded places. I do love my urban centers, fine dining, and culture but I also love time with Mother Nature. It definitely revitalizes you.

I haven’t been able to visit the Sunshine Coast as much as I like now that I am living in Southern California. I went for a visit in 2013 and stayed at the Painted Boat in Madeira Park. I could have easily spent a week or two along exploring the area but I didn’t have enough time. I know I’ll be back again, I just love it here.

While I was on the Sunshine Coast I went for a little solo hike in the woods at Francis Point Provincial Park, which is close to the Painted Boat Resort. It’s not a difficult hike. I’m not an expert hiker and not in my best shape these days. So if you’re a novice, which I am, it’s perfect. I was blessed with a gorgeous day to boot.

Here are some photos from the hike:
