Cougs are coming

Just a couple of weeks before WSU football hits Seattle to face Colorado, to the delight of thousands of west side Cougars. These photos were taken two years ago when WSU played Colorado in one of the first games played at Qwest Field. Yes, the Cougs won … but the first half was a bit […]

Sunflower season

A bonus from our bird feeder are the sunflowers that have sprouted up in the garden below. These photographs show various stages of development among several plants. The first stage reminds me of something I might see beneath the surface of Puget Sound. The bee in the third photo was quite cooperative. I think he […]

Doors open at new Dish

Housewares and cool stuff: bath, baby, gourmet foods, tabletop, clothing and more. That’s what’s happening at the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon, known affectionately by its customers as “The Dish.” Marianne just made the move back downtown this week, opening her doors for opening day of the 2004 Arts Festival. This beautiful new shop […]

Under the bridge

While I was waiting for the fog to lift, I scrambled around on Pass Island, the centerpoint of two spans at Deception Pass. Photos included wild roses, thistles and moss.

Morning at Skyline

A cruise through Skyline Saturday morning yielded some pretty photographs. Fog, which had cleared on the Guemes Channel, still hung over the community. It was a good morning for a walk.

A four-deer day

I encountered four deer at separate locations during my morning drive Saturday. Two were in the yards of homes, munching on grass. The third was in a field and the fourth was on the south side of the street as I made my way toward town from Washington Park. My favorite, of course, is the […]

Magic show

It was a day of firsts Saturday for the Magic, a 127-foot yacht launched enroute to a new home on the Great Lakes. A few dozen folks gathered at Dakota Creek Shipyard on the Guemes Channel for the vessel’s christening and launch. She entered the channel from DCI’s syncrolift at about 4:40 p.m., then motored […]

Making music

Music filled the air over the weekend, with local artists and regional musicians hitting the island to play for Shipwreck and What the Heck Fest. Playing for Shipwreck were Annieville Blues and Spoonshine, pictured in the first three shots here. I don’t know the name of the group represented in the fourth shot. I was […]

City of lost treasures

One of the favorite phrases around here at Shipwreck time is, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” There was treasure galore Saturday as dozens of vendors hawked their wares up and down Commercial Avenue. It’s an amazing event, really. It’s mind-boggling to consider the amount of time and energy that goes into moving countless […]

Vintage cars shine

Couldn’t help but think of son Mark Saturday at the car show on Commercial Avenue. Some beautiful classics shining in the summer sun. Mark starts “Hot Rod U” this week at UTI in Phoenix, where he’s studying to become an automotive technician. The engines on the classics are still an attraction to those who love […]

In search of…

The “journey” is half the fun at the annual Shipwreck Day sale. The woman in the first photo here scored near the end of the day on a dried flower arrangment, adding it to a box of goodies labeled: “Shipwreck.” In the second photo, a shopper takes a close look at an antique microscope. In […]

Berry was surprised by Salvation Army Anacortes Corps Captain Michael Paugh, who presented the station a plaque in recognition of its work on behalf of the non-profit social service organization. Delicious […]
