Grandpa’s Vette

A bright shining sun and a visit from 3-year-old grandson Cole Jackson prompted Guemes Island resident Dick Iverson to take his ’61 Corvette out for a spin Saturday. Iverson, who is now retired after 30 years in the Air Force, had just finished brunch at the bowling alley with his wife, Jan, little Cole and son-in-law Todd Jackson. I caught them in the parking lot for this family photo. Iverson’s Corvette boasts its original jewel blue paint. Turns out we have more in common than our zip code, too. We both worked for Wallie Funk … I as a reporter and editor at the Whidbey News-Times, Dick as a paper carrier when Wallie and John Webber owned the Anacortes American.

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.
