Visit this amazing place

This sign marks the entrance to a community gem: Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve, adjacent to the state ferry terminal on the west side of the city. Look for shorebirds, eagles, osprey, blue herons and more. A beautiful place no matter what time of year.

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.
