Rooftop view

Published September 27, 2006 / by Steve Berentson

September can be a awesome month in terms of weather. This was the view Tuesday afternoon from the New Wilson Hotel looking north toward the Guemes Channel. That’s the Majestic Inn and Spa, the state ferry Elwha in drydock and a crane at work at the Dakota Creek Industries shipyard. A tree-lined Commercial Avenue is particularly inviting as fall colors begin to emerge.

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.
