For me, the beautiful bald eagle is always “in the news.” I was focused on an eagle perched midway up the branches of an evergreen when this beauty came onto the scene for a “flyover.” Many nests on Fidalgo Island. Within a few weeks eagles from all over the region will descend on the Skagit River as salmon return upstream.
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.
