A very, very enjoyable trip report. I love your reports and sense of humor.

I am totally with you in the driving to that island tide anxiety! In fact, my parents were just in Maine and walked out to some island and didn’t pay attention to the tides or siren blowing, telling them to turn around. They ended up walking/running back to land in water up to their hips. I screamed at her on the phone when she told me the story.

We really enjoy Canada and have visited every year for the past couple of years. The border crossings, however, can be brutal on both sides. We encounter one Canadian agent that was scary aggressive and intimidating.

Cleobeach,

Thank you for the kind words and I am glad you enjoy the reports.

As for crossing the border, I do not and will not ever understand why people in positions of authority need to act like jerks. No matter what border they are protecting, politeness, manners, and efficiency should be the modi operandi for their tasks - which are very important and needed! However... jerks are neither important or needed.
