Wind and water

Published January 25, 2006 / by Steve Berentson

What a gorgeous morning for a trip to the beach! High winds churned up the surf under sunny skies, waves crashing on the rocky shores of Fidalgo Island. This photograph was taken at the end of 5th Street off V Avenue at the foot of Cap Sante. Word is we have more clouds and rain on the way…

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.
