I can’t tell you how many times I drove past the entrance to Bowman Bay when we first moved here several years ago and and never took the turn in. Now it is one of my favorite spots for outdoor photography sessions in Anacortes, and one of the most requested lately. Move over Deception Pass Bridge! Actually, when the tide is low, you can explore further and see the bridge. Bowman Bay is a favorite location for kids too, and I love capturing images of them running up and down the dock, throwing rocks in the water, and jumping from driftwood log to log on the beach.
