It is the season of fog, and the Northwest is still experiencing some level of smoke from wildfires to the south. Fog did not hamper the spirits of people yearning for outdoor experiences Saturday. At Rosario Beach, and again at Bowman Bay, adventurers ranged from hikers to families with children; from kayakers to scuba divers. A land of adventure, year-round.
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.
