Deception Pass, an area that got it’s name from Captain George Vancouver in 1792, was today’s destination. The trip ended up a couple miles shorter than the originally planned 9 miles because we just got too swept up in all the beautiful views. The Pass is a strait that separates Fidalgo and Whidbey Islands, connecting Skagit Bay with the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
