It was encouraging this morning (Sat., Oct. 17) to see lots of activity in the downtown Anacortes area, including crowds at the Anacortes Farmers Market. Did you know market memberships are available? Mark your calendar now for the annual Holiday Market at The Depot, Saturday, November 21. For details about the downtown market click here.

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.
