Violinist Geoffrey Castle has played several venues in Anacortes over the years, but his “Celtic Christmas” has to rank high with local audiences. These photos were taken 10 years ago during a Christmas performance at the Port of Anacortes Transit Shed. Sharing the stage with Castle were the Gothard Sisters … and Santa Claus! Event sponsors included Shell Puget Sound Refinery and Papa Murphys.
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.
