What game?

While the Philadelphia Eagles made history at the Super Bowl, crews worked through the day loading petroleum coke at Port of Anacortes Pier 2 on the Guemes Channel. The coke shipments represent a vital percentage of annual revenue from the Port, doing business with Shell Puget Sound Refinery. Local longshoremen also benefit from the shipping business. This vessel is the “Arubaborg,” pictured here from the beach at the one-time site of Wyman’s Marina.

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.
