Grant Candies

Published February 13, 2008 / by Steve Berentson

I was excited by this afternoon’s sunshine, so headed out with my camera for the Dakota Creek Industries (DCI) shipyard, where progress on the vessel “Grant Candies” continues. I can spot this boat from my living room window, but hadn’t been close for a couple of weeks. Ship construction is a fascinating art.

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.
