canadian thanks giving in point roberts, washington.
point roberts is an incredibly small american town (population 1,300) hidden within canada. as a coastal town that has failed multiple times to expand, it’s easy to comprehend how it retains aesthetics of another era. i am bewildered though by it’s ability to present itself through architectural-design, materials, automobile selection, and general sense of style that declares americana in contrast to it’s neighboring town (my hometown) by only a matter of feet (meters). it’s stark differences require no need of a border guard to tell you that you are no longer in canada.
ps. even the bonfires caught me off guard. we haven’t been able to do that decades.
