Clear skies drew me outside with the camera for some snow shots. Among my stops were Causland Memorial Park and Grand View Cemetery, where I photographed veterans memorial monuments trimmed in snow. The memorial at the cemetery is dedicated to Vietnam veterans, with names of several who died there. The Causland memorial is a tribute to those who served during WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, with another panel pending (Middle East campaigns).
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.
