Til next time Lopez Island, we will miss you!

I posted this on facebook a couple days ago and said it was one of our fav spots on the planet and it is. Our very first trip to Lopez was about 15 years ago in a catalina 22 sailboat and we just fell in love with Lopez Island, it's village, and "Fish Bay". We rarely go to the islands without a stop here on the way home. We hope you have time to slow down and try one of the best kept secrets in the islands.

 This is the narrow channel that leads you into Fishermans Bay and to the left is the Bay Cafe. One of the best restaurant sunsets you will find in the Islands and the food is fantastic.

Beautiful Church just south of the Airport on the west side of the island.
South end near the Fuel docks. Looks like this was where the Island received it's fuel shipments at one time. Not sure if it's active anymore.

Olympic Mtns in the distance.
Deception Pass bridge at the north tip of Whidbey Island. Just about 10 or 15 minutes off the return trip from the ferry's. Worth the side trip without the commitment of driving the length of Whidbey Island. This is the most feared section of water in the entire Puget sound to pleasure boaters. The tide change makes it impossible for sailboats and slower power boats to pass due to the flow rate.

This bridge is a favorite spot for jumpers that are serious about ending it all :-(

Wendy may have found here new calling for Florida. This guy pulled in at the market and 5 minutes later he was dealing dogs. Sounds like a nice way to work AND be at the beach all day.
