When I was young, I remember hearing the term “sidewalk superintendent” to describe folks who posted themselves on the perimeter of construction projects to observe progress. Well, the removal of E and F docks at Cap Sante Boat Haven offers the opportunity to be a “boardwalk superintendent” as contractor crews are busy this week with removal of old wooden docks and pilings.
This bright red unit “caps” a piling, shivers its way to a solid grip, and then pulls the piling from the harbor. Good stuff.
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.
