This historic barn on North Whidbey literally provides a “look back” as construction and interior elements are visible from a public trail. Note stone foundation and outbuilding. The farm dates back to the 1900s. Not sure of the barn. Old Fakkema Dairy farm, now a working farm operating under the umbrella of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. In addition to crops, there are chickens, sheep and cattle.
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.
