Tall ships draw a crowd: August 2002
Flat black. Must be the pirate ship.
Crowd at Seafarers' Memorial
I don’t remember details, but I do know these three tall ship replicas drew big crowds on a visit to Anacortes in August 2002. Among the ships are the Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Chieftain, which is reportedly being sold by the non-profit that operates it and the Lady Washington. The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport organization cites cost prohibitive maintenance and repair. Hope to see the Lady up our way again soon. For more details click here.
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.
