I’ve always been passionate about sharing how amazing the amazing Sunshine Coast community with others. That’s why I ran the Test Drive The Sunshine Coast contest earlier this summer. One lucky winner took home the incredible prize: a one-night stay at the West Coast Wilderness Lodge, a 3 course dinner at Inlets Restaurant, a jet ski tour and transport from Sechelt via Sunshine Coast Air.
Diana Azevedo from Hope, BC was the lucky winner. She brought her 20-month-old son, Koa, and her friend Chantal Martin.
While Diana and Chantal had been to the Sunshine Coast before for their annual Easter vacation, they had always wanted to go back. When I notified Diana she had won, she jumped at the chance and brought her BFF and son along too.
Needless to say, the experience blew their minds!
“The most memorable moment for me was flying in the float plane with Sunshine Coast Air. It felt like I was being whisked away to a hidden gem in the middle of the forest,” said Chantal. “All I could see was trees, water, and mountains, only to pull up to a wilderness resort where I ate the most delicious food; including a vegan kale caesar salad. And the jet skis - that was a surreal experience!”
The ladies just loved the relaxed vibes, friendly people and proximity to nature. And little Koa had a good time too.
