Daily changes

This scene from Cap Sante looking down on the Anacortes shoreline changes daily. Clean-up of the former Scott Paper mill site continues on several fronts. While crews continue to dredge/cap and construct new breakwaters, others are engaged in upland remediation. This project is managed by the Port of Anacortes, owner of Cap Sante Boat Haven and neighboring uplands.

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.
