We took off around 10:00 in the morning and took our time driving up there with a stop at the casino for lunch. We checked into The Ship House a unique and comfortable Bed and Breakfast. Then went down the road a piece and took the Deception Pass boat tour.
We grew in the Pacific NW and except for catching the ferry at Anacortes haven’t really visited it. Now, I want to go back. They get very little rain fall, the weather is temperate and if the baskets are anything go by, flowers love it.
We got one of the last boat tours of the day and the currents running through the pass were stronger than I realized. The boat guy said kayakers’ actually do the pass. We didn’t see any and I can’t imagine it. They must shoot through that pass. You’d have to be good to try it.
After the tour we meandered around town, and ended up in a down home café with amazing food on Main Street. If I were to assign a theme to this mini vacation I’d call it “A step back in time.” No hurry, people taking time to visit, wide streets. Almost a Norman Rockwell scene.
After dinner we had time to enjoy our room which looked out over the sound.
After a slow lazy start the next morning we said goodbye to this amazing part of the world and made promise’s to do more of these kind of trips.
