Correct!
NAS Whidbey Island is the premier naval aviation installation in the Pacific Northwest and home of all Navy tactical electronic attack squadrons flying the EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler.

Adding to the depth and capability of the air station are four P-3 Orion Maritime Patrol squadrons and two Fleet Reconnaissance squadrons flying the EP-3E Aries.

Return to Deception Pass

We returned to Deception Pass with the same site as last year. The photo shows the awning of our trailer on the right and the tents used by our son and his wife and three children. Site #152 was large enough to accommodate everyone with adequate room. There are lots of trees and the site is not serviced, but our solar panel supplied plenty of power for the water pump, lights and furnace (we had some cool days). An alternative to a larger trailer?

Not sure you can say "less is more" Brian.

There are those who disagree: What We Mean When We Say “Less is More” | The Other Side of Complexity

We spent most of our time outside with our grandchildren, which I think counts as "more".

That's what I was trying to say, more or less.

Nice photos Brian. Now we know what the "Lady Bug" has been up to.

Great looking family spot, Brian. Other nice photos too.

I recognize that blue tent. An MEC Wnderer 2, which I have owned for many years, and spent a couple hundred nights sleeping in, though mostly in the backcountry.

Nice photos of the Deception Pass Bridge. Once I tried to take some 30-second time exposures of the bridge in early evening. They came out blurred. I was puzzled at first, then realized that the bridge flexes quite a bit when vehicles drive over it. Something to think about.

The photo I took of the bridge last year was this one: https://www.flickr.com/photos/brian_...ll/14613715446

Exposure was 1/20 second, and it looks pretty sharp, so the problem might have been the 30 second time exposure you used and a long lens. You really need a rigid tripod and no vibration of the lens (let alone the bridge) for that type of shot! (I have been trying to justify a better tripod to overcome vibration problems, but can't swing it).
