Rick and I have been trying to get up to the Sunshine Coast for several months and we finally booked it. In the past, we have stayed at Tuwanek Hotel (www.tuwanekhotel.com) and it has been so great in the past we decided to try it again. We certainly weren’t disappointed.
When we got off the ferry we stopped in Gibson’s for a little lunch. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the artist’s walk was on (I am not sure this was as much of a highlight for Rick as it was for me). The most enjoyable and inspiring stop was at Ursela’s felt studio. My goodness, this woman’s creations were so magnificent. I highly recommend you seeking her out if you are in Gibsons.
Next stop was to see Sharon’s new store – Upstage. We all know Sharon for her staging business on Sechelt but she has now expanded and opened a retail location. It is so incredibly cute. Anyone could find something wonderful to take home from her inventory mix. Friends of ours have moved to the coast from West Vancouver so we stopped and had tea with them. They have definitely embraced the “Coast” lifestyle. And then off to Nirvana aka Tuwanek Hotel. I highly recommend a getaway weekend to this charming hotel. The service is impeccable.
