‘Focus Fidalgo’ Pier One upgrade: 2008
This group photo was taken in July 2008 at the “Focus Fidalgo” Pier One project groundbreaking hosted by the Port of Anacortes. This project, which also involved the state Department of Ecology, was vital to a series of major upgrades at the Dakota Creek Industries ship yard on the Guemes Channel.
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.
