New perspective

Published December 5, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

I had the privilege of looking down on Commercial Avenue this afternoon from the cupola atop the Majestic Inn and Spa. Prominent in this photo are the Red Snapper and Maison et Jardin, decorated and ready for the Christmas customer that is so important to the small town merchant.

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.
