Prominent among bikers at the Oyster Run were dozens of folks representing the Christian Motorcyclists Association (CMA). Their message, in word and action, was “Jesus loves bikers.” Most intersections boasted CMA volunteers in bright yellow vests doing their best to keep traffic flow safe. A “Bike Blessings” tent offered a place for prayer for bikers on their way out of town, and at least one band featured Christian music for passersby. Thanks to numerous CMA chapters for their important contributions! Always good to see them at this annual event.
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.
