When I typed “heron” into my website search engine I was reminded just how much I love photographing blue herons. They abound in this area, from marinas to bays, but one of my favorite heron photographs is from a sailboat trip to Chatterbox Falls, British Columbia in October 2005. Friend James Stover nicknamed this heron “The Old Man.” Light was great and the subject unflappable.
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.
