> There is a reason millions of people find their way to Deception Pass each year. This is a flat-out stunning place to visit, any time of year. I shot this photo Sunday morning looking west from the Whidbey Island side of the bridge. I must say I enjoyed a brief fantasy: sharing some deck space on this sailboat, “equipped” for the morning with a cup of coffee and a good book.
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.
