Reports are that this seal, stationed upland for several days near a Rosario Beach fenceline, returned Saturday to the bay. There was no report as to why the seal might have worked its way upland, remaing in one spot for a number of days before going back to the water. Deception Pass State Park officials had cordoned off the seal’s resting place to minimize the odds of human interaction.
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.
