Visiting the neighbors

As anyone at the Chamber of Commerce would tell you, Anacortes makes a great “base camp” from which to launch Northwest adventures. We’re just a brief drive away from Seattle and Vancouver … and many wonderful communities along the way. One such community is neighboring LaConner, which straddles Fidalgo Island and the mainland. A “star” of downtown LaConner is the Museum of Northwest Art, affectionatley known as “MONA.” An upcoming exhibition at the museum will be produced in conjunction with the Skagit River Poetry Festival. “Mark My Word” will be on display from Saturday, April 10 – Sunday, July 11. The exhibition will feature Northwest artists “whose works display the connections between the written word and visual art.” See “Off-island adventures” in the Activities section for photos from other weekend jaunts.

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.
