I had the opportunity once again this year to produce a couple of postcards for the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Center (VIC). Mary Talosi and a crack team of volunteers meet and greet community guests on a regular basis at the Commercial Avenue tourist information center. On occasion, they give away a postcard, complete with a tear-away reminder of recreational opportunities here in Anacortes. These cards, printed in partnership with How It Works, feature my photos of a Foss Tug, Cap Sante and Mt. Erie; and a shot of a tug departing from Cap Sante Marina near Seafarers’ Memorial Park.
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.
