Back to bay

Published February 10, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

After many months of being buttoned up on an “R” Avenue lot, the Port’s Seafarers’ Memorial Park building was returned to the Fidalgo Bay shoreline early Thursday morning. The building, moved temporarily during an environmental cleanup of the former Scott mill site, was moved a bit further south. It is estimated the building will be open to public use again in late May.

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.
