daytime adventure

d061c545d187463014aac8405b8c2ddf Good morning everyone!

What a wonderful adventure my friend and I enjoyed yesterday, we spent the whole day living each moment to the fullest.  At the end of the day we were laughing so hard that not only did we have tears in our eyes, my sides ached from all the full body laughs.

My husband bless his heart had to listen to the two of us recount our adventures when we got in.  From his expression, I think our outpouring mirth and chortling was, an experience for him of ” hmmm guess you had to have been there.”

yesterday’s PL lesson, was “Handle things that come your way one by one”  I can honestly say, my friend and I did just that.  Not only did the weather cooperate, the people we encountered were wonderful.  To the men at the border that had to spend time with us explaining what they were doing and why, we offer our heartfelt thanks, it was a quiet time at the border,, so we were fortunate to have experienced their “sunny” dispositions.  Perhaps quizzical at our having wandered into their domain…. they were gracious all the same.

We saw a lot of these badges, being worn by young men in navy uniforms The many many times I have crossed into the States, I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing so many uniformed personnel.  Yesterday we got to see where they worked inside the building that is there.  Now I know what is inside the building.  There is always something new to learn. =^_^= Having never seen this area of the border crossing, we were both rather curious and looked around us much like we would have enjoyed a stroll through a museum, or a first time visit with a friend. (which we also did yesterday)

Ok so the decor was rather severe, and the colour scheme was not meant to be welcoming.  It was a no-nonsense  environment, the metal seating in the waiting area gave us a clue that not all visitors to this area enjoyed  the visit, nor was their any indication that tea and crumpets would be offered. However, the staff, the men we interacted with, were cordial and did their best to make sure we were at ease.

The people we meet along the way have always been welcoming and happy to share their country with us.

Be aware, that even though we are neighbours, they have their own rules, laws and ways of enforcing them.

I think that what made the days so special for my friend and I was that everyone we met was so special, each in their own way.

Best of all each encounter we had with a challenging opportunity, we saw the humour and the fun side of the experience.

It was a long day,and each moment was lived to the fullest, it certainly will be a day that will have lasting memories for us, and our friendship has taken on even more sparkle.

We should live each day with enthusiasm, after a good night’s sleep, wake up refreshed and ready for whatever comes your way.   One of my frist thoughts for today was that perhaps, since we travel so much into the States, we should look into the Nexus card. =^_^=

  1. Encountering each adventure and each moment with openness, humor and courage is a great way to enjoy life. Not devoid of feelings or challenges but facing head on each one. Thank you for sharing these moments with us

  2. We have always attempted to see our regular stops at the border (almost every time we return to the U.S., where we live, from Canada, where we are citizens we have to go inside for an hour or longer) with the same sense of adventure you express here. However, there are many people in there who cannot because their lives hang in the balance; they might not be able to get home. We know there is no reason for them to detain us. Others are not so lucky. And once, we were not so lucky either — my husband was not allowed to return home for two months. Those experiences can make one approach the building at the border with a lot more trepidation, and often fear.

  3. Darn. I can’t edit my comment — I should have closed the parentheses after “citizens” in the third line, not after “longer.”

    • wow Carrie an hour.. you must travel when its been busy at the border.. thanks for visiting, lelt me know next time you are up this way,
