Monday, July 4th
Return to Seattle

Monday was another long travel day. We made the slightly over 1 hour drive back to the ferry dock, just catching the 1pm ferry. Once on the other side, we noted the signs telling us what the wait times were for crossing the border. Since it was a July 4th, there were a lot of Americans returning home for fireworks. The main Peace Arch crossing was about 45 minutes, so we took the alternate crossing, which still took about 20 minutes.

Fireworks from our hotel room

If you're ever in Seattle for the 4th of July, make sure you stop and take a look at Lake Union. As we drove by, we could see huge numbers of boats in the lake, all set up to watch the fireworks show later that night. It reminded me of all the boats in McCovey's Cove waiting for a Bonds home run ball in 2001. Okay, it wasn't quite so packed, but it was still a sight to see. Later that night, we enjoyed the fireworks through the window of our hotel room.
