Summer in (sort of) Review

Summer isn't exactly over but the end is creeping nearer. And with the smoke and haze we're currently experiencing it doesn't feel very summery now.

The Sunshine Coast is one of the best places on Earth to spend the summer. It's what we… Continue reading Summer 2016…and some other news
