Boating weather

Take one Memorial Day Weekend, add PassageMaker Trawler Fest and sunshine … and you’ve got a great day of activity at Cap Sante Boat Haven, the community marina in downtown Anacortes.

I was pleased that in the Anacortes area alone, three separate ceremonies were held to honor those who have given their lives in military service to their country. Bud Lane, pictured here, […]
