Heading out of town is one of the greatest ways to recharge rundown batteries.
My friend and I headed for the border crossing on Friday morning of the long Easter weekend. We spent three hours and forty five minutes in line. But that was fine, we had excellent tunes to seat-dance to and enough coffee to keep us going until we got across the line....that was until drivers passing in the lane to our right kept politely pointed out that we had a flat front passenger tire.
|rode on the rim for nearly two hours|
|Border Tire was busy that Friday!|
|spotted a rack of tires on display while we waited our turn|
We had spectacular weather our whole trip. Which seemed to bring every one and their dog out to enjoy it.

|a traveling guitar?|
|a MUST SEE store to believe it's amazing-ness!|
|this is solid glass, I kid you not - another stunning shop|
|metal letterpress characters|
|wooden letter press characters - be still my heart!|
After spending a wonderful day walking up one side and down the other side of La Conner's main street, we took a scenic route home from there, making a couple of shopping stops along the way before we headed into a who-knew-how-long-it-would-be-wait at the border.
In startling contrast to the Friday morning's three hour and forty five minute wait to get into the States - Saturday evening, from start to finish we were back in Canada in twenty eight minutes. Srsly!
|still love heading home despite a case of the nerves at the border|
