Dripping wet

Published September 15, 2006 / by Steve Berentson

I shot this post-showers photograph of flowers between groups leaving the starting line of the 2006 MS 150, a fund-raising event that started in LaConner and incorporated Anacortes and Fidalgo Island in its first-day route. Now that the rain has freshened things up a bit, it’s time again for sunshine to warm the backs of those attending the 3rd Annual Anacortes Jazz Festival on Curtis Wharf. The event kicks off tonight and runs all day Saturday and Sunday. See www.anacortes.org for details. Tickets available at the door.

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.
