NAS Whidbey part of naval air centennial
Anyone who has any interest in naval aviation will want to mark their calendars for the last weekend in July, when communities throughout the world will commemorate the centennial of U.S. Naval Aviation. Here in our neighborhood, NAS Whidbey will host several days of activities including an action-packed Saturday, July 30 open house split between Ault Field and the Seaplane Base (downtown Oak Harbor). More later on this extraordinary opportunity.
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.
