Welcome to the woods on the Sunshine Coast

Last night Morrie and Sher and I attempted to go out to dinner in Sechelt. They came up to the coast in their Jeep, but they had taken out the back seat so they only had two seat belts. They thought that as long as we didn't run into any cops we could get away with it, but we did and we didn't.

We got pulled over by a local cop, he laughed and said, You can't do this, and instructed Morrie to drive Sher and I home, one at a time. He waived the fine, but I guess we don't really want to try his patience. So getting out and about is going to be difficult. It's really too bad that I couldn't bring my truck (and kayak!) up here.

However, I have some old friends, Alison and Eddy, living up here, and as it turns out they are only a few blocks away. Today I walked to their house and knocked on the door, Alison answered. We hadn't seen each other in a few years so it was fun to catch up.

I suggested that the five of us go out for dinner that evening and everyone agreed. Alison and Eddy took us to a nice pasta place in Sechelt, and after a great dinner we returned to Morrie and Sher's for a bonfire and roasted marshmallows.

In this neighbourhood all the lots are a half acre and quite heavily treed. It's almost like a campground, only each campsite is a house site, mostly hidden in the trees.

Morrie and Sher have a few lovely old cedars on their lot, and a peekaboo view of the ridge between this neighbourhood and the town of Sechelt.

They love their address: Wildwood Road in Welcome Woods, by Halfmoon Bay on the Sunshine Coast.

What a wonderful place to be, to visit, and to live.

I have to agree about the ethereal and serene address Morrie and Sher have! Sounds like heaven!
