This past week I went on a little adventure with my dad down to Point Roberts (aka. the little section of the States that you can only get to by driving through Canada)... ALSO known as the place of cheap gas, one American supermarket, and nothing much else. It started with me intending to go down by myself to pick up a rug that I had shipped to an American address (shipping to Canada = $40, shipping to the States = $7!!!) you do the math. But my dad wanted to tag along to experience "THE USA", as he calls it.
So I finally trumped his life-long misconception that "the States is far and dangerous" because 40 minutes later, we were across the border and I had already picked up my rug. My dad then proceeded to explore the uncharted territories of Point Roberts and persuaded me to drive all the way down to the end where the land meets the deep blue sea.
It was the sunniest day we'd had in months. Look at how blue the sky is in this one... (not even Photoshopped!)
My dad was in a good mood so I
Since we were randomly exploring anyway, we also checked out the supermarket... seriously, there are SO MANY MORE FLAVOURS for everything than there is in Canada. And... there were also controversial items that I've never seen sold in Canada...
These made me laugh... then shake my head... then pull out my camera to document the hilarity...
So overall, it was a great trip - Mission Accomplished - on so many levels; I got my rug (yay! see below!), made my dad unknowingly take creeper pictures, found racist salad dressing...what more could I ask for? BEST RANDOM DAY TRIP EVER.
