A quiet little backwater estuary filling a drowned stream valley. Spits, hundreds of acres of salt marsh, and thick forest down to the water's edge. Too bad it ended up on the Gig Harbor Peninsula, where no good shoreline is left unpunished. There's an inkling of what it once was at the newly acquired Wollochet Bay Estuary Park at the mouth of Artondale Creek.
The aerial was shot from a commercial airplane a few years back. The other shots were taken very late Monday afternoon, while I waited for evening rush hour traffic in Tacoma to subside.
