Departing from Cap Sante Boat Haven Monday morning was the Brendan D II, a research vessel homeported in Port Townsend. Hmmm. Who — or what — is the focus of this crew’s research? Perhaps AnacortesToday.com should do some of research of its own? (Editor’s note: According to website guest Patrick Dray, the Brendan D II is owned by Jim Norris from the Port Townsend Marine Science Center https://ptmsc.org/. The boat is used to help study the fisheries in Puget Sound. Thank you, Patrick!)
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.
