Nervous turtle

Published May 21, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

In all my years of driving past beautiful Heart Lake I have never seen a turtle. This afternoon I wheeled the car around when I saw this guy basking in the sun near water’s edge. I got ONE shot off before he went into underwater mode. And I was hoping for a “portrait” with sun to my back…

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.
