Bench with a view

Published July 25, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

It’s not likely you’ll find solitude here at this time of year, but there is often a bench seat available near this weathered crag at the top of the Washington Park Loop Road. At least two generations of my family have utilized this tree as backdrop for photographs of children. The Loop Road summit provides a sweeping view of Skyline, Burrows Island and marine traffic.

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.
