Watery wonderland

Water levels are very high at the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve adjacent to the state ferry terminal. Rainfall runoff flows from surrounding highlands to the wetland below, with much of the water ultimately feeding into the saltwater harbor. A beautiful season to enjoy the wooden boardwalk that meanders through wetlands. Already there are signs of […]

Major project

Crews continue to work below ground level as construction continues at the Anacortes City Water Treatment Plant in Mount Vernon. The project, essentially a re-build of a 40-year-old plant, will be complete in mid-year 2013.

Loaded and ready

If it’s August, it must be time for water balloons. I discovered this colorful stash at a weekend picnic. There were no “survivors” from this collection.

Seasonal water fun

This photograph of “pirates” and tugboat was taken last summer at the Anacortes Work Boat Race. That event will take place again this year (even MORE pirates) on Shipwreck Day, July 17, but in the meantime, there will be plenty of other opportunities for fun on or near the water.

Biz Point rescue

Two teen-aged boaters were rescued Tuesday night off Biz Point after their “Sunfish” sailboat capsized. First on the scene at about 8 p.m. were a couple of neighbors in a rowboat and small skiff. They were soon joined by the crew of the Crowley tug “Response,” which had been diverted by the U.S. Coast Guard. […]

It WAS a water festival…

I was just a little bit late with the camera on this shot Sunday at the Waterfront Festival. Anacortes High School students Ryan Broussard and Hillary Pressentin jumped together into the chili waters of Cap Sante Boat Basin, followed by their friend, Andrea Pitz. I’m not sure if there was a bet involved, but I […]
