September splash

Published September 17, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

It is mid-September, and the weather has been “fall-ish,” so I was quite surprised Monday afternoon to discover this teen performing acrobatic dives at the small boat launch at Seafarers’ Memorial Park. With videographer friend at her side, the athletic young woman made several “dives” into what must be chilly harbor waters. Good planning, because today is rainy and cold.

About Steve Berentson
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.
