Old view

I shot this photo from Cap Sante in the Eighties. Reference points include Washington Federal Savings and Safeway. Some shoreline properties have been demolished, others constructed since this photo. There are no longer covered boathouses at Cap Sante Boat Haven, either.

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.
