Skywatch Friday - Cap Sante Park

Last Saturday, I found a new park in the town of Anacortes, Washington called Cap Sante Park. It is primarily a viewpoint overlooking the marina, the City of Anacortes, March Point, Fidalgo Bay and the Cascades. You almost have a 360° view of the area from the overlook. The park is maintained by the city of Anacortes.

The skies were bright blue on this very windy day. I'll be sure to visit this park again.

These are fantastic captures, Sally! Looks just like the water and skies over the Sound that Linnea and I took photos of! Gorgeous, but cold and windy!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Wow, blue skies in the PNW is such a rare treat. Yet your viewpoint is Spectacular. Nice shots all the way around.

The Mount Baker photo with the ferry in the foreground is just heavenly!


The sky-seekers, some people say,
Do not favor night over day;
They always look up,
The sky is their cup,
And keeping it full’s their cachet!

Beautiful shot of Mount Baker. It wasn't hiding its head in the clouds for you that day.
I love the blue skies, too. Fabulous place for sky shots, Sally.

Great photos and views from the park. So that's what Mt Baker looks like, it was covered in clouds when I was there. Happy skywatching!
