Victorian adventure

Imagine my surprise this morning when I encountered Sarah Chrisman on Pass Island at Deception Pass. Sarah and Gabriel Chrisman are a married couple engaged in a long-term experiential study of culture and technologies of the late nineteenth-century. According to their website: www.thisvictorianlife.com, she writes books about the Victorian era, “and our entire life is an ongoing research project into our favorite decades of the 1880’s and ’90’s. We love teaching others about the everyday lives of the past, and feel that exposure to the real clothing of real people offers an opportunity to understand history in a way that can never be conveyed by costumes. We are NOT actors playing dress-up to portray ‘great men/women,’ but just ordinary people choosing to insert as much of history into our present as we can, and using our experiences to teach others.” Sarah said she was on her way today from Port Townsend to LaConner to view daffodils and tulips. Wow.

About Photographer 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.
