7/4/2008--Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada..The Lighthouse Pub, in Sechelt, is the Sunshine Coast's central hub. At the Lighthouse, the open-air patio is often crowded with patrons enjoying heaping bowls of fresh mussels (shown here), pitchers of beer, and sunsets over a marina lined with sailboats and floatplanes. ..The rocky Sunshine Coast of British Columbia is just two hours northwest of Vancouver and can only be reached by ferry from Horseshoe Bay near Vancouver. Much of the coastline is accessible by boat only and protected as provincial parkland and visitors have an array of activities to choose from including hiking, kayaking, diving and sailing. Hotels, resorts and B&Bs offer a range of accommodation for travelers...©2008 Stuart Isett. All rights reserved.
