Travel Log – Vancouver to Lynnwood, Washington

Back to the USA

Saturday – September 27, 2014

Welcome Sign

 

Depending on your view, the good news – or bad news –  is that they let us back into the country. After an 80 minute wait at the Peace Arch Crossing at White Rock, BC/Blaine, WA we were once again on our way.

 

There was plenty of time for a little ironic political thinking of the roadblocks for citizens to be admitted when our borders are open sieves for illegal entries and terrorists because we wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Yet the tax paying, legal, upright citizen is given the third degree. Why doesn’t someone call that profiling?

 

We spent the afternoon and evening visiting with Bob’s cousin Walt and his wife Ann, a delight to see them again after many years. We enjoyed lunch in their home and an outstanding dinner at Oyster Bar Restaurant south of Bellingham. The drive south on the old road right along the water was marvelous – narrow and winding but very scenic.

 

Dinner is worthy of an entire story. For now, let’s just say the best meal with the best view and company we’ve had on the entire trip.
