Special moment

Published March 1, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

I was on my way back to the car when I saw motion on the beach ahead. I raised my camera to see a mother hold her child in her arms.. The two watched quietly as two deer stepped back from water’s edge before disappearing into the forest. Ship Harbor, Anacortes.

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.
