Deception Pass in the Rain wth Dogs
It was called Deception Pass because it had misled him into thinking Whidbey Island was a peninsula. The "deception" was heightened due to Whidbey's failure to find the strait. I keep calling it Deception Point which is a novel by Dan Brown. Not the same thing.
When we were there it was pouring rain. But I got to talk with the owners of this guy whose name was Lucky. He was soaking wet from walking on the trails in the rain, something that few of my bassets would do. Although, they might well go out in the rain for a ride and nature walk.
There are two spans, one to the island and the other from the island to the other shore. To get these photos I had to get out of the car and walk down into the commemoration area........you know it.......in the rain.
Frank couldn't get out of the car at this point because we couldn't figure out how to turn the stupid car off. So I walked out by myself. In the rain.
But I have said before, I do love bridges and this one was worth getting wet for.
We don't have anything like this in Louisiana! the glacial runoff water is green with glacial silt.
There were so many greens in this land of much rain! I think it is an actual rain forest.
this is looking out on the inlet. I am thinking if it were a clear day you would be seeing the Ocean.
there were lots of these golden flowers around as well. I knew at some point what they were, something like wolfbloom.
I have more tomorrow! Keep watching.
