A Short Trip to Blaine


After the Olympic Torch celebrations it was off to Blaine, which is across the border in Washington state but only 8 minutes from home. Gas is thirty cents cheaper a litre so it's always worth the trip. Since it was a beautiful day I decided to drive to the fishing pier and there was the Royal Hudson waiting to go back to White Rock to pick up passengers for the return trip to Vancouver.

Blaine has a fishing fleet with many of the boats going on long trips up to Alaska. A lot of crabbers go out of Blaine and catch their crabs in nearby Mud Bay. The saddest part of this is you can't buy any fish here and there don't seem to buy any fish shops in Blaine. Still it's a beautiful drive and I love looking back at White Rock across the bay.
