On our way home last Sunday from the tulip fields in Skagit Valley we stopped at Deception Pass and decided to take a boat tour offered at the bridge. Shortly after we had gotten underway, we were especially fortunate to witness an unexpected bonus of nature's day to day routine. We watched in awe as a bald eagle suddenly dropped from the sky in front of our boat, snatched a fish from the water and headed up into the trees for an evening meal. By the time our boat had quietly motored up to the bank beneath the eagle's tree, he had devoured most of his catch, but I was able to get a few quick shots before he sailed off. During the hour long tour we were given an informative and lively presentation by the crew and we also spotted seals, porpoises, a peregrine falcon and more eagles. Thumbs up for Deception Pass Tours.
