Back in the day (80s and stuff) we used to go across the St. Clair River/Lake St. Clair to go to Canada.
The thing that sticks out in my mind is the friendliest border guards/coast guard guys in the world. It was like "hey, so why are you traveling to Canada today?" Oh, we're just gonna go pick some strawberries at that farm…you know the one. "Oh, cool! Well have a nice time, and don't forget to bring some back for us!"
Once out on the lake, we got "busted" by Canadians for having open alcohol on the boat. "You guys know that's against the law over here, right?" (My brother puts his beer out of their line of sight) "Okay, you guys have a nice day!"
And of course, living so close to Canada we got Hockey Night in Canada, SCTV, and CBC Radio.
Now take off, eh?
The woods! Even though they’re not talked about much, Canada’s extensive Boreal Forests are super cool to me
Edit: Now wondering how my most upvoted comment is literally just me saying that trees are neat-
