Things got off on the wrong foot when my mom 'realized' she left the bike book at home, and we had to use google maps to try to figure out where to start, where to park, all those details - we both were getting frustrated... so we parked in a random residential area and went from there.... and discovered this whole time the darn book was in her bag... had to laugh. So we got ourselves on track. This is where I should tell you that this book was written in 1973... that's really old for a guide-book.
Well really, I started to get hungry... and every dead end we ran into (which was often - seriously out of date book!!) made me get irrationally angry. At one point I hear my mom chuckling behind me... apparently she finds it quite humourous how my normally cheery and positive attitude (I think my positive spin on everything annoys her) disappears quickly as my hunger grows. Sorry mom! My mom had told me that we would find beautiful beaches lined with fish and chips shops... not true! It took us forever to find a place to eat. Once we did, my mood improved drastically and despite more wrong turns (the books fault, I swear!!), we finally made it back to our car.
Just one random fact about Point Roberts (also affectionately called Point Bob - that doesn't count) - in 1973, a drought hit the area causing tensions between the American and Canadian residents of Point Roberts. If Delta did not agree to provide the residents with water, the Americans threatened to cut off the Canadians water supply and apparently even hung up signs saying "Canadians go home." Delta complied and in 1986 this arrangement became permanent.
