As the two signs in this photograph indicate, this space on the corner of 22nd Street and Commercial Avenue has been home to a couple of restaurants in recent years. Now change is in the wind once again as Lori (inset) and Michael Hayes plan to shift gears from food truck to sit-down restaurant. The Vagabond food truck will soon make way for the Vagabond Station, with an expanded menu in addition to the selection food truck customers have grown to love. Vagabond will continue to serve at events and locations at least through the end of summer. Look for them Fridays at the Seafarers’ Memorial Park concerts.
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.
