Leaving Bremerton to kayak Anacortes

We always enjoy getting on the Washington State Ferry to go somewhere. It is sad to leave the Kitsap Peninsula. But more to be seen
Deception Pass State Park is a 4,134-acre marine and camping park with 77,000-feet of saltwater shoreline, and 33,900-feet of freshwater shoreline on three lakes. Rugged cliffs drop to meet the turbulent waters of Deception Pass. The park features breath-taking views, old-growth forests, abundant wildlife, and sand dunes. The park is well-loved for its spectacular views of shoreline, mountains, islands, and sunsets. It was a foggy day that we were there but the campground looks great.
Anacortes is homeport to the San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest. Located on Fidalgo Island, it is conveniently situated halfway between Seattle and Vancouver BC and is the destination point for the San Juans and International ferry runs for Washington State.
We took the full day kayak trip out to Burrows Island to see the lighthouse and caught the tide on the wrong way on the way back. 2 hours would have been good. We were tired puppies when we got back to our little WA state campground on the edge of town.
