Oh Canada!

Hi Everyone! 

I am so stoked! Today I drove into Canada myself for the very first time! YAY!!! I’ve been wanting to do this since forever because I live less than a half hour away from the Ambassador bridge and have a passport. I never have though because I was afraid to go there alone and also couldn’t see a way to do it because I didn’t have GPS or reliable transportation. But all those things have changed.

Last night I resolved to finally do it and decided just this morning where I wanted to go while on the “other side.” (lol) One of my swim instructor’s other students recently swum at the newly opened aquatic center in Windsor, Ontario and she advised that their pool is massive and has really tall diving boards. I’ve never seen a competitive swimming pool in person before so I wanted to check it out. 🙂

The diving blocks in particular interested me and saw swimmers use them. I hope I get to try them one day. 🙂

The dive tank is 17 ft deep. Woah!

Had passed this place on my way to the Aquatic Centre and walked forevers to find it! Alas it wasn’t open. Totes bummer.

Stopped here for lunch and received Canadian change. Yay bridge fare!

The Return

I  was interrogated for ten minutes upon reentry into the US. -_-|| Not fun.

Bridge fare!

Overall it was an interesting experience and I’m glad I got to see the Aquatic Centre. 🙂 They have open swim times and affordable drop in pricing however… it doesn’t jive with my work schedule and going through US customs on a regular basis doesn’t appeal… lol.

Check one! 😀

Thanks for reading!
