For the second day in a row, I’ve had to engage the car defroster before heading to the Penguin. I think I recall hearing the words “watch for black ice” in an early morning conversation between wife and son. The good news? Did you SEE the moon last night and again this morning? Wow! And have you seen our snow-capped volcano (Baker)? Clear, crisp days for photo ops, and Christmas decorations are showing up all over, from neighborhoods to Commercial Avenue.
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.
