Visible here are two marinas and the Guemes Channel beyond
Many boaters opt for dry storage, some inside, some outside
This photo from 38th Street in south Anacortes demonstrates how important boating is to this community. Among marinas visible here on the shore of Fidalgo Bay are Cap Sante Marina (950 slips, approx. 100 transient), Fidalgo Marina (55 slips) and Anacortes Marina (466 slips). Also visible are upland storage facilities, some offering marine services. Other city marinas include Skyline Marina on the west side and Anchor Cove Marina on the north shore.
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.
