View from the top

Published April 19, 2004 / by Steve Berentson

There’s a reason local folks send visiting out-of-towners to Cap Sante. This is a Sunday morning view to the west, toward Cap Sante Boat Haven. Visible to the top right is the New Wilson Hotel (red brick), tentatively scheduled for renovation in the near future. Pictured at the base of the photo is the gazebo at Rotary Park. This is a pedestrian-only access. A beautiful walk along the North Basin.

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.
