Whidbey Island through the camera lens

Deception Pass bridge

On Sunday 8th of July, we drove a friend from Holland up the island to see this spectacular bridge, which connects Whidbey Island to the mainland, and as we were returning from across the bridge, we saw four ambulance/aid vehicles in the parking lot. Then as we drove further south, there were more ambulances, a fire engine, and other emergency type vehicles racing with sirens blaring, North towards the bridge, and the site of an obvious tragedy. We have not heard anything further about the incident. It is a sad fact that people jump from the bridge to end their lives.

It is a shame that this beautiful bridge has this reputaion. A very pretty spot indeed!
