On the beach

Sunday was a wonderful day for a visit to the beach. Sunshine and unseasonably warm temperature drew this family to the beach at Deception Pass State Park. I opted for the view from the bridge.

Pacific hues

Everything about this photograph is “Pacific Northwest,” from heron to hues of color on the Guemes Channel shoreline between Port of Anacortes Pier 1 and Curtis Wharf. A quiet Saturday morning before the annual rumble of motorcyles arriving for Oyster Run.

Kayaking Sunset

This young kayaker made his way along the busy shoreline at Sunset Beach, a gathering spot for dozens of folks last weekend. Activities at Washington Park range from camping and Loop Road walking to picnicking and boating. Always a great place to be on a sunny day.

Get to the beach

It’s the last day of July. Tick tock. Grab that picnic lunch and get to the beach. Among my personal favorites is this stretch of beach at the bottom of stairs just about a half-mile into the Washington Park loop road.

Beach adventure

Just a short distance after starting onto the Loop Road at Washington Park you will discover a parking area to the left on a hard left turn. Park the car and descend a staircase to this wonderful stretch of beach.

Beaches beckon

I took the “local traffic” option a couple of days ago through the Sunset Avenue street improvement project and was rewarded with this photograph of the beach at Washington Park. It’s time to go into storage to dig out that cooler and beach umbrella. Sunshine’s on its way!

Boys and rocks

Take one father and two sons, add Northwest bay and rocky beach…and you’ve got the elements for an evening of the kind of fun that dates back to forever. This dad put on a clinic Thursday at Seafarer’s Memorial Park, displaying talents in distance, precision and stone-skipping categories.

Beach bummin’

Midday Monday was a busy time at Seafarers Memorial Park on Fidalgo Bay. One picnic table was populated by a crew from a nearby work site, and this gentleman found a spot on the rocky beach for his chair and a place in the sun. Boating activity was heavy, and by late afternoon young people […]

Bridge and beach

This photo was taken at about 8:45 Wednesday evening from a bluff above North Beach on the Whidbey side of Deception Pass State Park. This spectacular park is a great place to be at any time of day during the summer months.

Sand structures

By the time I arrived, only remnants remained of the sand castle. Someone had the good sense to spend time at the beach, not only enjoying the sun but doing something creative at the same time. Is it ever “too early in the season” to kick off our shoes, peel off our socks and walk […]
