Hunkered down

Published January 4, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

Seagulls generally fly away when approached, unless there are french fries involved. I didn’t have fries with me, but this guy was hunkered down against the cold wind and didn’t intend to move on unless absolutely necessary. On top of irritating weather, the gull had a pesky feather stuck to his beak. Maybe a dip in the bay will clean that up.

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.
