Yesterday, after the flight lesson at Boundary Bay, I went to Point Roberts to buy gas. As you know, Point Roberts is an enclave, a territory of the U.S. in Canada. It is located at the end of a Canadian peninsula but south of 49 degrees of latitude. I heard that a long time ago the U.S. and Canadian governments made a mistake when they drew the border line. It was only a 15 minute drive from Boundary Bay to Point Roberts and it took only a few minutes to pass the border. Point Roberts is a small town but it has several gas stations for people from Canada like me. The gas price yesterday was C$1.06 in Vancouver and C$0.86 in the U.S. I was able to save almost C$10 for 50 litres of gas by making this small trip abroad.
