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.

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?

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.
