Website principals Chris Terrell, Gael Morlan and Jef Morlan
Waaay back in January 1998, Anacortes businessmen Chris Terrell and Keith Eyer put together a small team of collaborators to launch anacortes.net, a website conceived as an “electronic town square.” Among others on the team were Gael Morlan and Jef Morlan, one-time owners of a restaurant and coffee shop called The New Bohemian. Anacortes High School alum Neil Berg also played a key role in the design and launch. I took these photos to accompany a front page article in the monthly “Fidalgo Magazine,” a free tabloid published by the Skagit Argus and edited by John Hein.
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.
