Then I had the horrid thought of "what is a duty free shop anyhow?" So we drove inside and realized TOO late that there are SPIKES (one way) that prevented us from exiting out of the parking lot back into CANADA. We must drive on to USA. OPPS. We didn't have our passports, no ID for our three girls sitting in the back.
Thankfully, there was a sign saying "Return to Canada"...oh YES! So 5 pm on a Friday we are waiting at the Canada border to return to Canada. Yes, we got to stare at that silly Peace Arch for a good hour.
Not exactly the "park" feel we were looking for...
The Peace Arch
Welcome to the US...HA HA
Return to Canada! YES!

Fun to get away, fun to have new experiences and fun to be back in Canada, not stuck at the crossing.
