In memoriam

This was the scene two years ago in Causland Memorial Park on the morning after the infamous attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The flag was at half mast as a groundskeeper moved up the steps of the park amphitheater. As was the case in communities throughout the nation that day, flags flew at half mast up and down the main street as well as in front of countless homes. I especially recall the huge flag flying at half mast in front of the Anacortes Printing building on Commercial Avenue. Many flags fly at half mast again today, as we remember those who died on that horrific day, and those who have died subsequently in the nation’s ongoing war on terrorism.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

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.
