Destination downtown

Published March 25, 2004 / by Steve Berentson

“Swell food for salty dogs” is one of the messages recently hand-painted on the front of the Adrift restaurant in downtown Anacortes. While Adrift builds its clientele, work continues on the Majestic Hotel down the street, and on the former Harbor Restaurant (now P.W. Murphy’s Restaurant) a couple of blocks away. It’s a busy neighborhood, and it will continue to get busier as seasonal visitors begin to stream into town.

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.
