If you are not in the high risk category and choose to do so, please take care to protect yourself and others by maintaining a safe distance. Do not touch common surfaces such as railings and the faces of interpretive signs. Wash hands and surfaces before and after an outing.

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.
