Running the boardwalk

Published March 24, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

When I hear “esplanade” I think of the beautiful pedestrian walkway at Cap Sante Marina, linking to the Tommy Thompson Trail. Say “boardwalk” and I think of Ship Harbor, where pedestrians can enjoy a stroll through wetlands and beachfront. This shoreline path links to the Guemes Trail, which may someday link to the Tommy Thompson Trail and onward to March’s Point.

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.
