Weather was not the ally of Oyster Run 2019, but thousands braved the rain to show up to Anacortes anyway, and the sun emerged late in the day to make the road brighter for those headed home. Activities of the day ranged from vendor booths and shop specials to live music, oyster shuckers and traffic flow volunteers. As always, bikes and bikers came in all shapes, sizes and colors. Oh, and there was that distinct “rumble” as well. Another run in the books…
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.
