Whale watchers return to Anacortes port
Whale watching adventures out of Anacortes are a significant contributor to the local economy. Among several local vessels is the Mystic Sea, pictured here returning to Cap Sante Boat Haven in the early evening from a weekday jaunt to the islands. Already tied up next door after a beautiful day of whale watching is the Island Explorer.
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.
