After recent work in drydock at Dakota Creek Industries the MV Tokitae is back at the Ship Harbor ferry terminal in West Anacortes. This ferry is a 362-foot, 1,500 passenger vessel that plays an important role in the Washington State ferry system. The ferry, built in Seattle, has two car decks (capacity 144 vehicles) and two passenger decks.
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.
