A man and his dog

Published May 29, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

Who among us cannot relate to the heartwarming image of “best friends,” man and dog, taking a stroll on a sunny afternoon? This photo was taken at the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve (SHIP). On the east side of the cul de sac leading to the Guemes Trail I encountered another duo — woman and dog — sharing an adventure of their own.

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.
