It was the Summer of 2002 when I shot this photo of tall ships motoring out of Cap Sante Marina. The Hawaiian Chieftain and the Lady Washington, regularly visitors to our community over the years. Their visits here include opportunities to visit aboard at the dock as well as on brief cruises. On at least one occasion, the two ships “battled” on Fidalgo Bay.
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.
