Eerie bay scene

Published August 16, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Smoke from forest fires in the region continue to obscure summer sunlight on Fidalgo Bay, pictured here Wednesday night. Despite weather the bay was busy with sailboats, tugs, assist vessels and tankers. Forecasts call for some clearing, then possible reappearance of smoke. Air quality warnings are posted by Skagit County.

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.
