|Easton - Awake and content!|
You can click on any or all photos to enlarge.
Our time has been busy visiting with our new grand child and, when the weather permits, a bit of motorcycling and hiking. But the emphasis has been on visits with Easton and lending a hand with the new parents.
|Saturday - Stopped in to Fort Langley, for a much desired coffee break, following a good motorcycle ride.|
|A Sunday hike through one of our cherished hiking spots.|
|Jeanette navigating through dense brush.|
|In wet weather, this trail is great because the path is well packed. There is no mud and it's easy to navigate.|
|The skunk cabbages are surviving well!|
|The forest is greening up though!|
|No evidence of fish in this stream yet but it won't be long now.|
|He, of course, drew all of the attention. Welcome, little fella!|
|Following a really nice visit, Trevor bundled him up for the 15 minute drive back to their home.|
|All strapped into his car seat.|
We love the benefit of NEXUS Canada Nexus Pass | Canada Immigration Visa & Travel It's a kind of super passport. It allows us to use special 'speed lanes' into the USA and back into Canada.
|The Harbour in Blaine, WA. - a few blocks from our NEXUS Interview.|
We were early applicants when we joined Nexus five years ago. It's a bonus to 'near border citizens' (like us) from both countries who cross the borders often. It's seamless and quick. With an 'iris scan' one can avoid the long security lines at designated airports in both countries. Double bonus!
Once we were confirmed for the following five years of NEXUS membership, we were told to expect our special high security wallet sized cards in the mail within seven to 10 business days. Once received, we can stash our passports away unless we choose to travel to a countries outside of the USA and Canada. What a treat these cards have been for us.
When we approach the US or Canadian border, we flash the card in front of a scanner. When we approach the security officer in the booth, he/she already has our NEXUS security information on computer screen and, other than the rare question(s), we are waved through the border. YEAH!
The NEXUS card applies to RVers too. RVers - unlike transport trucks - are allowed to cross the borders using NEXUS lanes. What's not to like about that?

And that, blog readers, colours the past three days.
Thanks for dropping by.
