Blaine, WA and Peace Arch Park

Yesterday Mary and I took a day trip to Blaine, WA only about five miles from our campground. It is the last city in the United States along Interstate Highway 5 before entering Canada.

First stop was at the harbor where a couple of tall ships remained from the weekend tall ships gathering.


Then we took a walk in Blaine Marine Park along the waterfront. Very pretty scenery, but we had the pleasant surprise to run across a blackberry growth running about 300 feet long. We spent about a half-hour pigging out on the very delicious berries.


Then we entered Peace Arch Park commorating the friendship between the United States and Canada.


The park is about one-half mile long and cared for by both countries. Here one can stand with one foot in the United States and one foot in Canada at the same time. In this photo, Canada is on the left.


Here is the Peace Arch which sits right on the boundry as seen from the United States side.


Here’s the Peace Arch Park sign on the Canadian side.
