Docks and uplands are busy at Cap Sante Marina as the Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show enters its final day (Saturday, May 20). Sunshine and events such as this one promise to make Anacortes a popular destination this spring and summer. Many at this week’s boating event are spilling into town for shopping and dining. Cap Sante Marina will be busy again soon for the Anacortes Waterfront Festival, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce (anacortes.org).
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.
