Spirit of 98

Published January 25, 2006 / by Steve Berentson

Up and out of the water at Dakota Creek Industries shipyard this week is the Spirit of 98, a vessel owned and operated by CruiseWest. I look forward to a day soon when I can take a photo like this one … only with blue skies and billowy clouds as a backdrop.

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.
