Waterfront bustling

Published July 26, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

While recreational boaters fuel up at the Port dock for a sunny summer outing, crews labor nearby on the Anthony’s Restaurant (visible on horizon, opens in January 2011) and on the neighboring environmental cleanup at the former Scott Paper Mill site. Traffic is heavy for whale watching vessels Mystic Sea and Island Explorer as well. In a few weeks, classes open at the new marine tech center. Whew!

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.
