Memories – Deception Pass. This was shot about 8 years ago. But our Dad took his boats through here many times when I was a child. In early days we had to wait for the tide to be “correct” as not all the cabin cruisers and smaller boats could get through against a tide. Later on we had 30-35 foot Chris Craft or Owens boats that made it at any time.

Unfortunately the bridge is known for suicide jumps. A relative of mine knew someone who jumped, and was found on the shore the next day and did survive. Most people have not.

Although marred by these tragedies this is a beautiful area of Washington State
