Pedaling the esplanade

Published November 21, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

A bicyclist enjoying the relative solitude at Cap Sante Marina’s North Basin stops for mechanical adjustments. This esplanade, or walkway, leads to Rotary Park at the base of Cap Sante, inaccessible to vehicles. Eventually the esplanade will become part of the Tommy Thompson Trail, which will follow the city’s coastline and cross Fidalgo Bay to March’s Point via an abandoned railroad trestle.

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.
