Good old fashioned elbow grease is a major element of the renovation underway at historic Causland Memorial Park near downtown Anacortes. AHS graduate Bryan Elliott, now owner of Elliott Stoneworks of Sedro-Woolley, is the contractor with responsibility for replacing all stonework on the sweeping park bench seats in the Causland “amphitheatre.” Forms in one corner illustrate how the new aggregate surface was applied. Another photo looking north shows the contrast between old and new. Work will be completed by the end of the month.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
