Above the beach

Published March 23, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

Talk about your “pleasant work environment.” Crews continue work this week on shoreline walkways at the Port of Anacortes’ Seafarers’ Memorial Park. The park, part of the former Scott Paper Mill site, was part of an environmental cleanup that will be completed in May. The Fidalgo Bay beach is now inviting, as opposed to intimidating, and new park assets include public dock and pier.

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.
