On the morning of July 8, we packed up and drove out for coffee and pastries. Did I mention in my last post that the PNW is amazing for those of us with celiac? Even small coffee shops and restaurants have GF options. I had a raspberry muffin with my coffee and it was fantastic.
We drove about 2.5 hours to the Canadian border. We didn't have any paperwork besides our passports, so we were a little nervous that we were missing something, but other than being asked the usual questions (Why are you here? Where are you staying? Where are you from?) we didn't have a hold up. We continued straight to our Airbnb, an old heritage house apartment/loft. It was very quaint and pretty convenient.

|Funny story: Matt and I were trying to get a selfie (pictured below) and a super sweet lady overhead shouted down that she'd take our photo and text it to us. I shouted Matt's number up to her as we finished our walk around the bridge.

Of course we saw the steam-powered clock and walked along the streets a bit. We stopped for a drink and dinner at Steam Works Brewing Co before calling it a night.
