A very special guest made our trip to Deception Pass State Park extra memorable

We're not going to be together for the holidays this year, so our family decided to celebrate early by taking a trip to Deception Pass State Park. On that recent off-season Monday, we practically had the whole place to ourselves.

After enjoying an early dinner, we wandered down to the beach to catch a beautiful sunset. It was chilly, but we stoked the campfire and toasted marshmallows for dessert. Who says s'mores are strictly a summertime treat?
