You have to go through Canada to get to this part of the USA...

We live close to the USA borders (Blaine/Aldergrove and Tsawwassen, BC)

To get to Point Roberts, WA. by car, you have to drive through Canada to the US border at Tsawwassen. We have friends there so we visit often.

This was taken during today's amazing sunset at the beach:

Your friends don't like "simple"...

I think it should be part of canada - look how the southern end of Alaska "creeps" downwards to take territory from BC!

Hehehe...not simple at all, you are right. But certainly very beautiful and that makes it worth it.

It's actually crazy: you have one street where Canada is to the right and America to the left. I'll try and remember to take photos of that next time.
