Time skates by

Published December 9, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

I was sorting through old images today when I ran across this photo from the fall of 2001. The city’s skateboard park on “R” Avenue was under construction, and Mayor Dean Maxwell (center) stopped by to check out the progress. The park’s been a great addition to the city park system, offering a welcome recreational option for many young people.

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.
