Deception Pass

First we crossed the first half of this two-span bridge. It`s impressive just as a bridge --

but then you look down.
And then you look more closely: It`s really very big!
There was camas growing everywhere,

and arbutus,

and beautiful steep hillsides covered with succulents and wild flowers!
And at the bottom there was a wonderful tidepool

with anemones, chitons, tube-worms, hermit crabs, fish, shellfish of many varieties, and even a pink sponge! The kids declared it better than the aquarium!
Then, back at the top before driving away, they also improved the sign, by adding a statue to it. :--)
