Deception Pass-Anacortes, Washington

We are staying at Deception Pass State Park, just outside Anacortes, Washington on Whidbey Island.  We are south of the Canadian border, north of Seattle, on one of the many inlets on Puget Sound.  This is a beautiful place, as all of our stays in Washington have been.  The northwest, especially Washington is one beautiful area. Great weather, cool breezes, and everything is green. We spent time in the city of Anacortes and went to the races in Alger at the Skagit Speedway.  We spent the rest of the time relaxing, after a hectic 3 weeks in Canada and Alaska.  We did take a drive over to Coupeville, a nice town on the sound that we visited back in 2012.  We saw a baby seal there and spent time shopping in the many shops, and walked out on the pier.  We also stopped in Oak Harbor for a wine tasting, shopping, and a haircut for Vince.

The beach was nice, but too cold for a swim, so we had a picnic

The baby seal struggles to survive.  Where the heck is it's mother?

Debbie is ready for the races
We saw the Winged Sprint cars race
We saw the late models race
The main attraction was the big rig races
Day is done....that's me at the Whidbey Winery, just relaxing!
