Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 12 through Sunday, Dec. 8, international service between Anacortes, Friday Harbor and Sidney, B.C. is canceled due to required maintenance on both vessels in Washington State Ferries’ fleet certified to run international service to and from Sidney, B.C. Those ferries are the Elwha (pictured) and the Chelan. During this maintenance period, the Kitsap will replace Elwha/Chelan and sail in the #1 vessel position to maintain full 4-vessel service on the domestic San Juan Island routes. Kitsap will complete the domestic portion of the international sailings between Friday Harbor and Anacortes.
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.
