When I lived at Lake Campbell in the late 70s I had two “bookend” barns, one near the highway and the other not too far from Lake Erie Store. The highway barn fell first, and then this beauty succumbed to the ravages of time. This photo was taken in late April 2002. Remnants of the structure still remain.
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.
