Living up in the PNW, you learn pretty quickly to appreciate and take advantage of every sunny day you get. Last Saturday was one such day. The sun was out, the breeze was light, and so we put a hat on the Bear and headed out to Deception Pass Park. Having driven over the Pass at least 100 times by now, this was the first time I actually stopped and walked around. Of course, being a sunny day it was crowded at every corner, but we managed to enjoy some quiet time on the beaches, and in the shade of the trees.
