Sentimental journey to Summer of ’05
This 2005 photograph of the late muralist/historian Bill Mitchell takes on added emotional significance as those of us who love the Anacortes Arts Festival like Bill did come to grips with the fact that there will be no artists in the street this year. Cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
