This is Liberace, the little guy who rules the roost at my brother’s house. There are a dozen or so beautiful hens to photograph, but for some reason I opted to single out Liberace on a brief Saturday afternoon visit. I was rewarded with a peck on the ankle the moment I turned my back. Yeah, he’s a tough guy all right. Next time I’ll focus on one of the more cooperative chickens.
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.
