A Camano Island Moment

One of my favorite places to visit on Camano Island is the English Boom Historical Park.

Located near a tiny airfield where the runway literally ends at the edge of a bluff overlooking Skagit Bay, you’re still more likely to see bald eagles than planes coming from that airport  (although, you could also see small planes coming from a second nearby—but grass—runway located within the bay, but I digress).

This post is simply an opportunity to share some ordinary moments captured on camera Monday evening.

An importan word of caution, though.  If you visit the English Boom Historical Park and decide to venture out along the trails, be certain you’re aware of the tides.  The last thing you want is to become stuck in the bay during high tide.  The area’s filled with deep, narrow channels that fill with water as the tide comes in.  You can become surrounded by water in what seems like an instant.

Don’t get stuck calling for rescuers.  Know the tides.  And don’t push it, waiting until the last minutes before heading back to the main parking lot.

Okay, with those words of caution now out of the way, here’s a look at A Camano Island Moment; ordinary for the English Boom, yet symbolic of so many treasured moments experienced within this jewel of a location.
