Padilla Bay Slough - Near Anacortes WA

Slough? Well, perhaps not.

:  :  :

I’m not really sure

‘slough’ is the correct term

for a stream when it gets close enough

to salt water that the tides ebb

and flow in it.

It just dawned on me

that estuary is the term where

at the mouth of a river the tide meets the current of the stream,

so perhaps that is the correct term.

it was a pretty scene,

looking northwest across the fields

to Padilla Bay near the Skagit County

town of Anacortes.
