The Peace Arch Border Crossing gets incredibly busy later the day especially on a Sunday. I know this because I’m half a mile away from the crossing and our car is stopped. That’s ok. It gives me some time to write this post.
We took a trip down to Seattle today to get some various sundries. It’s a bit of a drive from Vancouver so we had to leave at about 6 am. We took a pit stop for breakfast and groceries at a big box store for a couple of hours and by noon we were in Tukwila near Seattle. We spent another couple of hours there shopping and grabbing the rest of our sundries. By the time we left it was already about 3 pm and that brings us to the present.
The border line up is apparently an hour long and it can only get longer. On particularly bad days, the wait can be as long as three to four hours. I’m happy that we got here before it got really busy.
Anyway, while on the way back to Vancouver, I snapped a photograph of the highway ahead. So now, since I have some time, I’m writing this post for you. Enjoy.
