Wyman’s Ramp

Published March 11, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

Walking up a new boat ramp on the Guemes Channel are Anacortes Port Commissioner Steve Hopley, Port Executive Director Bob Hyde and City Council member Erica Pickett. The three participated in a Friday morning ribbon cutting held to acknowledge the “rehabilitation” of a ramp at the site formerly known as Wyman’s Marina. This event was immediately preceded by a ribbon-cutting at the “T Avenue” project a block away. The T Avenue Project was funded in part by the Community Economic Development Fund (CERB) under the state Department of Commerce. The ramp rehabilitation was funded in part by the Skagit County Economic Development Public Facility Grant tax fund.

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.
