You know you're from the Sunshine Coast when...
WINTER is over and spring is finally here - which means more sun and even more beach weather.
The gorgeous weather and beautiful beaches are a few things that make the Sunshine Coast the best place to live ... so we thought we'd compile a list of those little things that make life on the Sunshine Coast so darn good.
People smile and say hello to you at the beach or walking past you on the street
This has to be one of the best things about the Coast - people are kind to each other here.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, everyone is pretty mellow here because when you live on the Coast, what is there to be down about?
You call Stockland, Sunland.
Even though Stockland has owned the shopping centre for years, there's just no changing old habits.
You know the importance of finding the best spot on the beach
It can make or break a day at the beach.
You shiver when its 21C
You'll never understand how those southern tourists can live down in cold, windy, dreary Melbourne.
If it's too cold to wear shorts, then it's too cold.
You never turn the ceiling fan off
Wether it be the coolness it brings to your bedroom or the comforting sound, there is no way you could sleep without your fan on. Or have it off in any room. Ever.
You call our largest shopping centre "the Plaza".
Let's be honest, it's just easier.
Your floors are covered in as much sand as dog hair, cat hair, or even carpet.
There is always sand everywhere - in your house, in your car, on the dog... and if there isn't then you've been away from the beach for way too long.
