A day trip to Seattle was in order this past weekend. There's a number of border crossing posts to choose from in order to get from the Vancouver area to Seattle, and it's like choosing a line at the grocery store - why does it always feel like you choose the slowest one? Our first crossing choice was unwise as we were met by an hour-long wait, so we trekked over to see the wait time at another crossing, which ended up being more bearable. We Canadians like to visit the US. Especially when our dollar is good.
