Lisa’s bears, afternoon light

Published August 5, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

There are many Anacortes-LaConner connections, but one of my favorites these days is the Bears ‘n Friends shop in downtown LaConner featuring stuffed bears from the collection of the late Lisa Wooding. Check out the summer specials at this unique shop, with some stuffed bears on display and many others for sale at special summer prices. Besides our common love for Anacortes, Lisa and I shared the distinction of being WSU grads. Go Cougs!

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.
