Crowd at Shell

Thanks to John King of Birch Equipment, I got this bird’s eye view of a moment in time at Shell Puget Sound Refinery Saturday morning. Crowds continued to grow as the day progressed. Shell opened its gates to guests for a “Community Appreciation Day,” staffed by about 150 employee volunteers as well as members of several service organizations (Lions, Kiwanis, Rotary, Scouts, Wreslters for Life). Visible here are activity centers including a climbing wall, baseball toss, haystack search, Bingo tent, food booths, “virtual” flight and hitting cage. The free afternoon event drew an estimated 3,500 – 4,000 people.

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.
