Great Falls

So Monday morning we headed down to Great Falls with our neighbors.  Neil was just gonna make a quick trip with Craig down to pick up the heater he ordered but then Elaine said she wanted to go and I should go to so we all headed down.

We stayed at the O Haire Motor Inn which I had never been to but has a sip and dip bar in it.  We missed em, but apparently on every night but Monday and Tuesday they have mermaids swimming in the pool that you can see from the bar.  The whole hotel is decorated with original formica and tile from when they opened, kinda neat to stay there for a change.

I only had 3 things on my list but of course came home with much more than that, lol.  I wanted jeans, boots and cherry coke.  I had Neil picking up cherry coke if he went down anyways (figured jeans and boots would be a bit much o ask, lol)  I got 2 pair jeans, some pink boots (which I have worn the last 2 days and are super comfy!) a couple shirts and some tail wraps for the ponies.

Was a good trip and I enjoyed the time away although we were not thinking on the exemptions of how long we were down there.  Apparently after 24 hours you can bring home $200 and after 48 you can bring home $800.  well me and Neil had about $800 between the 2 of us so we ended up paying $41 in tax but I still think we made out better but just not as good.  Next time we will be more careful.

Very interesting on the exemptions on buying stuff. Do a lot of Canadians do this...crossing the border just to go shopping? Aren't there good places to shop in Canada, too?

Looks like you had some fun, though, and that O Haire Motor Inn sounds like a very kitschy kind of place. lol!

Sounds like a worthwhile trip, even with the charges

Sounds like a wonderful trip! Money just doesn't go anywhere any more!
