Every time I hop on the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale ferry I forget 1) how quick the trip is to the Sunshine Coast and 2) just how gorgeous the entire area is. Mountains dipping straight down into the sea, evergreen-covered islands, white sailboats, blue skies, and an abundance of arts, culture, and festivals. Now the Sunshine Coast […]
