Vancouver & the Sunshine Coast Hwy.

My husband & I are thinking of including 2 or 3 days along the hwy 101 Sunshine Coast after we tour Vancouver & Whistler in July . We enjoy scenic drives , short hikes, kayaking,nature photography & amazing scenery . Any suggestions on a good "home base" for 2 nights? It seems there are lots of cool small towns. But with the ferries involved I don't want to have to backtrack. Thanks for any tips on the area.

Joan

We drive up the highway once a month to our place in Powell
River however, last summer we stayed in Sechelt at a very
nice B&B - Absolute Heaven. It's just north of the town
on the beach with a great view.

Friends and our DD have stayed at the Painted Boat Resort in
Pender Harbour and both had good experiences. Pender Harbour
is really beautiful but not a town. Sechelt has the restos,
shops, etc.

There's great hiking all along the coast - all levels of
difficulty; kayaking is smaxing and there are rental shops
in Gibsons and Sechelt (and Powell River).

July is the perfect month to go anywhere in BC - have a great
trip!

Thanks I will check those places out. Have you ever done the boat tour or zodiac tour of the Princess Louisa Inlet? It looks beautiful, wondering if we should try to fit this excursion in?

We've sailed up the Inlet - and, yes, it is spectacular if
the weather is cooperating.
