Second Stop: Sechelt

Second Stop: Sechelt

Back on Highway 101, I drive toward the town of Sechelt, which straddles a narrow isthmus between the Georgia Strait and the 20-mile-long Sechelt Inlet. All along the Sunshine Coast, purple banners mark studios and galleries that display the work of artists who've found inspiration here. I find their wares on the side of the road at Sechelt's lively Saturday market, along with local produce, fresh halibut, and an accordionist who doesn't mind harmonizing with the wind chimes for sale.
