I knew he likes birds, and I knew he is a talented photographer, but was I incredibly impressed last weekend to discover a website of wildlife photos collected by my brother-in-law Craig! Included here are his copyrighted shots of a Cooper’s Hawk (covering expired Band-Tailed p\Pigeon with his wings), a Pileated Woodpecker and a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. Craig works out of his back yard in Lake Forest Park in north King County, hand-holding his digital camera and investing many, many hours to compile an amazing collection of images. To see more of his work, visit www.troublebound.smugmug.com.
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.
