There is a special place that we discovered in our travels in search of the perfect beach, challenging golf and great cuisine. That place is Roberts Creek, in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. Perfectly placed between Sechelt and Gibsons, this charming community has it all. There are bed and breakfasts galore, vacation homes, a hostel, and great camping.
When were were there on in mid August we were able to experience and participate in the silliest parade and the most interesting market with live entertainment all in the perfect setting of Roberts Creek beach and park.
It was an incredible day of continuous entertainment, great fast food, crafts, and just tons of local characters. We met a kayaker that had just kayaked from his home on Gabriola island and had come in to spend the late afternoon and evening before kayaying his way furnther up the coast to his eventual destination at Powell River.
We then went back to our vacation rental after picking up some suculent wild salmon fillets from the local fish monger and had a fabulous bbq. A truly spectacular day and wonderful evening. The sun shone the whole day making me the biggest believer in the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.
