A beautiful spring day in Anacortes. Time to dust off the bike and do some exploring. We had head about the Tommy Thompson trail (https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/tommy-thompson-trail), and have seen where it crosses Fidalgo Bay while driving into town. Today I decided to go find it.
I rode in from Skline on SR 20… not many options here, and the shouldder is pretty decent. I went to see if the local bike shop was open (it wasn’t) and then across to “R” Avenue. The trail is a paved, multi-use path that runs beside it. It winds through the boat yards on the way out of town and then out and across the bay.
I rode a little way towards March point. This is a photo looking back across the Bay to Anacortes. On the right is a trailer park owned by the refinery for recreational use by employees.
This is looking back at the trestle across the bay.
Finally, a shot from the trestle looking north up the Bay towards Anacortes and Cap Sante Marina.
