We took advantage of the BC Ferries pass which allowed unlimited travel in 3 days to visit the Sunshine Coast.
I used to live in Gibsons so it was nice to get back for a visit. The visit was timed for the Sea Cavalcade weekend which happens every July. There was a fireworks display in the harbour, which is where most of the touristy stuff is, including Molly's Reach (as seen in the TV show The Beachcombers).
Heading north we stopped by the Davis Bay sandcastle competition, and Skookumchuk Narrows before taking the ferry to Powell River and onwards to Comox and home.
