Downtown Anacortes is “shipwrecked” under sunny skies today (Saturday, July 15) as the annual Shipwreck Fest has drawn a crowd of thousands! Thanks to the Fidalgo Island Rotary for hosting this mammoth “garage sale,” which draws many to Anacortes for a fun-filled weekend.

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.
