Last week certainly got off to a weird start. It's possible that these posts wouldn't have been written if it weren't for the kindness of strangers. Thanks, Canada.
The church we hoped to visit was only about two hours north of us, so we drove up on Sunday morning. It was a border town, and I (Mindy) hoped to walk into Canada and back using my recently-renewed passport. Dean's passport is expired; he'd stay on the US side of the border. That was the plan, anyway.
As we approached the building, a friendly border guard approached. We told her what we had in mind, she showed us the pedestrian entrance to the building -- and said we'd already crossed the invisible line marking the border. Uh oh.
visited a church and a bar just south of the border -- the furthest north, as far as we know, of either in Washington. And since he wasn't detained in Canada, Dean was able to post a final scary sequel at Movie Churches.
The furthest north church in Washington
The last horror movie church sequel (for this year, anyway)
The furthest north bar in Washington (probably)
One more thing: did you know that even if you're not in the United States, you can buy our books? Here are those links should you want to check them out:
