Four from Deception Pass

This is the last batch of pictures.

I was really fascinated by the current of Deception Pass. It can reach several knots, and there were plenty of whirlpools and eddies throughout the channel that we could see. That's one the fascinating things about tides, to me: How different they are. At Edmonds ferry terminal, it came in quickly, each wave reaching a little higher than the previous, the water staying a little further up the shore between waves. At Rosario Beach, the tides were a gentle sigh. Every so often, the water would move and you'd notice the tide was higher. At Deception Pass, the tide was a torrent.

Common Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis)

Julie spotted this, as she does with practically all the wildlife. This one even stuck around long enough for me to get a decent picture.

Millipede (Harpaphe haydeniana)
