I’ve been there at all times of year, in all kinds of weather. I can tell you there is no such thing as a bad day at the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve (SHIP) and neighboring Guemes Trail (east toward Lovric’s Boatyard). This is a particularly beautiful time of year, however. Take a stroll alone, or in a group. Check out the shoreline birds, sometimes including eagles and osprey. Neighborhood aromas include the sweet smell of wild roses…
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.
