Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. I arrived in Vancouver around 11:00am on June 21st, having left Seoul at 4:30pm on June 21st! I managed to get a seat with some extra leg room, so all was good. Since arriving I’ve been spending time between Vancouver and Washington State. The cameras haven’t been too busy, but I have caught some shots with the Iphone. Do scroll to the end for a pleasant surprise.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.

Minutes to boarding…Canada bound…
The setting sun…
I managed to miss the sunrise coming into Vancouver, and the next time the camera saw any action I was across the border in Washington State at my friend’s summer place.
Towering evergreen trees everywhere…
The summer retreat … Washington State
On Monday we left the summer retreat for a few days. However, not before a blogging friend and long time contributor to Travel Photo Thursday, Jackie of TravelnWrite, paid a visit. We chatted about our travels, and where we hope to go in the future. There was even some talk of a future Travel Photo Thursday meet-up! Thanks so much for the visit, Jackie! I know our paths will cross again.
Washington State is less than an hours drive from Vancouver. Crossing the border is relatively easy. Canadians can cross by showing their passport, or if you are a frequent visitor you can purchase a NEXUS card. The card is good for 5 years, costs $50.00, and gets you into the express lane. If you’re not a Canadian
you’ll have to go into the border crossing office, show your passport, and obtain a Visa. After 48 hours in the States you can bring back up to $800.00 worth of merchandise. There are restrictions on the fruits and veggies you can bring back. You are allowed 1-40 of alcohol or 2 bottles of wine. Keep your receipts!
