Fire hall open house

Loren accelerates and heads back to the barn. No, wait! What’s that yellow line from the bumper? Yes, as it turns out the ol’ AFD ladder truck was under tow today at the department’s open house. Still, always fun to see this classic out in the sun. Knutsen is one of many committed volunteers who have applied considerable skills and experience to the restoration of this American beauty.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

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.
