Day Twenty-five - Yakima WA to Anacortes WA - July 23, 2010

We have ARRIVED!  And are delighted with the town of Anacortes.   We are fortunate enough to get a choice double campsite facing Fidalgo Bay without a reservation, and quickly take the Jeep to explore the area.  We talk to the helpful lady at the Chamber of Commerce Information Center, who gives us maps and lots of tips on what to do and how to do it.

We spend some time checking out state campgrounds and find that although they are beautiful. we quickly realize that Sweet Caroline would balk at trying to negotiate some of the turns and trees close to the drive.  Oh, well................

We drive over the bridge at Deception Pass and are excited to see the turbulence in the current, caused by the extreme tidal flows, and Herb explains when you would take your boat out and when you would not.  

Back at 'our home' for a week, Fidalgo Bay Resort, we take Jake for a walk in the pasture beside the bay.  We are joined by Jasmine, a McNab of the Border Collie family, who amazes us with her ability to catch the ball on the fly.  

Jake joins in the fun, and both end up in the water retrieving and cooling off.                                                                                                                     We do know how to towel dry a wet dog!
