I was hardly alone on my Monday afternoon adventure to Rosario Head and Bowman Bay. There were a number of small groups and couples enjoying the beauty of this area under sunny skies. One couple from Bellingham sat with their dog, looking south in hopes of seeing aircraft from NAS Whidbey. Others enjoyed exploration in Rosario tide pools and a stroll on the expansive beach at Bowman Bay.
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.
