Salish out of water

Published September 17, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Back in the day it was not uncommon to see a state ferry from streets at the north end of the city. This is the scene Monday from a vantage point across the street from City Hall. The MV Salish in for inspection and repair work at Dakota Creek Industries (DCI). Washington State Ferries officials said the MV Salish had a “soft grounding” at Coupeville a week ago Sunday.

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.
