Little Elleece Kratzer was delighted to discover she was the crowd favorite among competitors in the pirate “Aaaarrghh” contest at last weekend’s Anacortes Work Boat Races. Elleece is pictured here with emcee Martin Iverson and younger brother Ethen, who finished a close second to his sister.

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.
