Deception Pass

We packed up the Basecamp Friday and soon after Havana got home from school we left town for Deception Pass State Park. Traffic was bad all the way to Marysville so we didn’t get there until after 7pm. Jon and Megan and Emmarie left later and got there at 8:30pm. We were neighbors in slips 306 & 307. The last time we were here was over 12 years ago when Gay and Megan ran a marathon.

Jon and I went to the Deception Pass Bridge for some drone videos and photos — I flew the drone under the bridge and then over the bridge:

Flying the drone so far away, sometimes out of sight, and over water made me nervous given how my previous drone was hard to control and ultimately died in water. But the Mavic 2 was perfect.

Barley needed a seat after a long walk:

Havana wanted to sleep in the tent with Gay so I got to sleep in the Basecamp with Hudson and Eva both nights. I really like sleeping in the Basecamp. The Discovery is still great to drive.

Anticipating rain, I picked up a Caddis Rapid Shelter 10’x10′ canopy at REI Thursday evening. That was easy to setup, feels very sturdy and worked great over the camp site table to keep the rain off us. That’s going to be nice to have!
