Summer took its time getting to us this year; but boy is she making her presence felt!
Itâ€™s been wet and crappy for so long that I feel a tad wishy-washy bemoaning the heat.
With summer comes exploration; I kicked off the season last weekend with a trip to Point Roberts.
Itâ€™s a small town in the US (WA State), but it’s only accessibleÂ by land through Canada. Something to do with the 49th parallel, when they were divvying up the land.
Iâ€™ve always wanted to visit for its peculiar location; it’s about a thirty minute drive from downtown.
So there we were on a quite Tsawwassen Road, and then appears the border crossing.
The town has great beaches, campgrounds and a calm relaxing atmosphere to it. Itâ€™s a nice and unique place to get away to. It reminds me of the Sunshine Coast.
The gas there is cheap (US prices) and the Canadian$ is accepted all over.
I wonder why people donâ€™t just drive there to buy gas, weâ€™re seriously contemplating it.
I’m not sure about groceries although a colleague who lives around there said that’s where she gets her milk. There’s one general store.
Thereâ€™s also cheap liquor and the stores are open on Sundays – most Vancouver liquor stores are closed on Sundays.
