  1. Peace Arch, Blaine, Washington state, US?
  2. Memories of West Montrose trip. DW has 3 scrapbook cb albums, because when she passes on, she wants family to save them.
  3. We have visited the West Montrose cb, but before I wrote travelogues. It's a lovely bridge. We also rode a scenic train--St.Jacob's Waterloo, in 1999. We have been visiting covered bridges for 40 years.
  4. I live 12 miles from the Canada border, but I can wait until the fees are gone.
  5. I grew up in Buffalo and I agree with you at present it may be more difficult for Canadians to enter the US. But rules could change. Indeed, with Covid test requirement not many US day trippers will go to Canada for Chinese food, shop in Niagara on the Lake, or sight see the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. I have read about provincial trade barriers being greater than US/Canada trade barriers.
  6. DW and I visited Eastern townships area of Quebec in 2019. We were looking for covered bridges, DW's focus. I wrote about it here: http://www.vermontbridges.org/keatings_in_quebec_june_2019.shtml This is the area where Louise Penny has set her Armand Gamache mystery series. Here is my review of book 1. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1281167864 We did not go to Montreal or Quebec city. We have previously visited all of New England's covered bridges--585 worldwide so far.
  7. This is my 1st picture post, on this thread
  8. Peterhof palace, St Petersburg?
  9. DeSantis signed Key West override law today.
  10. Our high yesterday was 90F. Today 85F. Since we are near 2 Great Lakes, we have high humidity and moderate temps in the summer. Sometimes the humidity and temp are the same. We have ac. The downside of being near 2 Great Lakes is lake effect snow in the winter. In the blizzard of 1977 we received 100 inches of snow over 3 days, 200 inches over the winter. See below June 2010 pic of our then 3 year grandson giving ceramic birds a bath in our birdbath in our back garden
  11. Two pictures: Our front garden on April 21, 2 months ago. Alaska rr trip, Anchorage to Fairbanks
  12. I also like trains, but I only rode 1 UK train. see below. If you do the Az Sea of Cortez cruise, there is an excursion on the Copper Canyon rr, which I recommend. Az charters the train.
