I often note that it takes a boat or airplane “tour” to fully appreciate the wonder of this little corner of the world we call home. On Thursday I took a flight with a friend, flying this Cessna out of North Whidbey Island. In coming days I’ll be sharing images from the air, ranging from Deception Pass to the Skyline Marina and the Swinomish Slough. Except for one bug-splat incident on my camera lens, things went well. Will have to do it again, sooner than later.
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.
