Local waters around Anacortes are busy, reflecting a diverse maritime economy. Pictured here on the Guemes Channel are power boat (recreation), Guemes Ferry (public transportation), tanker (industry) and tug (maritime services). (Oh, and I think that might be an international ferry in the distance! Anacortes to the San Juans and British Columbia.)
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.
