Oh, gees....I didn't even tell you the best part. When I got to Canadian Customs, on the deceleration card, I had marked that I was bringing in nuts, and that I went over my limit of allowances...my total being over $150 (24 hour allowance is $50). The Customs officer asked me if I had any meat...I said no, everything is vegan. You could see the stuff in my grocery bags, and he looked at the Field Roast Grain sausages, and asked "even these?". I said..."yeah, I am excited to try those!" He said: "well since you are so nice to the environment, I'm not gonna bother with the duty and taxes!". YAY!
I actually used to work for customs...he was just being lazy...but some of them are hard a$$es and will nail you for anything. So it was nice.
The other great thing was....I was the only passenger on the way back...so I got to sit with the pilot in the co-pilot seat in the seaplane, and had an amazing view back. Wow, what a trip. I highly recommend it!
AND....Whole Foods gives you 20 cents for bringing your own bag! Not the mere 3 cents that Thriftys (here in Victoria) gives you!!
