North to south

Published December 7, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

Today we enjoy a north-south perspective on downtown Anacortes from the cupola at the Majestic Inn & Spa. Volunteers from the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Center (VIC) combined a Christmas party with hotel/spa tours Monday afternoon. The volunteers hear from business people on a routine basis so they can keep up to speed for sessions with tourists and others who have LOTS of questions about our fair city.

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.
