Possible border crossing delays?

A day on the beach at Point Roberts...almost perfect. Except for the two hour delay at the Blaine Peace Arch border crossing.
6:25 pm

7:00 pm

7:30 and still hanging in there. Good boy.

8:00 pm and we made it to the Peace Arch. It won't be long now.

Delays or no delays, the Peace Arch is always pure inspiration. Dedicated in 1921, this monument is situated on the US/Canadian border  The inscription on the U.S. side of the Peace Arch reads "Children of a common mother", and the words on the Canadian side read "Brethren dwelling together in unity". Within the arch, each side has an iron gate hinged on either side of the border with an inscription above reading "May these gates never be closed".

Beautiful sentiment. At least I don't see the US invading Canada anytime soon.

At least we're almost home.
