Arrival Whidbey Island Naval Station Campground

25 August 2016

Our drive today down IH 90 to 405 and exit 30 to Hwy 20 and our home for the next 3 weeks, Whidbey  Island Naval Air Station (Cliffside RV Park). This is our 4th stay and one of our favorite campgrounds overlooking Juan de Fuca and San Juan Islands.

Our drive on 90 afforded beautiful views of the Cascades and over the Snoqualmie Pass. When we exited onto 405, there was a collision at the 70th Avenue exit which caused a delay of over 1 hour at 5 miles per hour for almost 30 miles.

Driving down Hwy 20 to the base and over Deception Pass is a very  scenic drive especially over the  DeceptionPass bridge and past Pass Lake.

After arriving, took a walk to view  the  eagles. Below are the best photos..the one in flight, John took. The campground has many flower gardens and cute signs made from driftwood. Ken and Diane, you are great hosts. Where else can you get complimentary flower arrangements for your table from the campground garden? To all our military friends who have not camped here, you are missing a great experience  and location. So relaxing to view the Juan de Fuca and islands.

Our stay here will be mostly one of relaxation and catching up. We may go  over to the islands one day.
