Return to Rosario

What a wonderful morning is was! Given the governor’s lifting of state park closures due to COVID-19, I grabbed my camera and made my way to Rosario Beach. My trip featured opportunities to photograpph blooming plants as well as shorebirds, geese, rabbits and quail. The views from Rosario Head were stunning, and confirmed that boaters, including recreational fishermen, would take immediate advantage of the chance to wet a line once again. There were only a few others at the park, so it was easy to practice social distancing. When you get out to enjoy our gorgeous corner of the state, take care. And don’t forget to fill your lungs with that clean, fresh air!

About Photographer Steve Berentson

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.
