The Port of Anacortes, owner of the Cap Sante Marina, has made impressive improvements at the downtown marina over the years. These images show dock work under way in December 2005, when shoreside businesses included Captain’s Place Restaurant and Cap Sante Marine. Today the “A” Dock, otherwise known as the commercial dock, is undergoing replacement with upland improvements.
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.
