As many of you who live in the Pacific Northwest know, there are so many places to be thankful for and certainly Anacortes, Washington is no exception! My facebook fan page really says it all…”Love Where You Live”…and I do.
One of the people brings that sentiment to life through his camera lens and a man I’m happy to call my friend has the talent of taking the beauty and splendor of this little slice of heaven I call home and capture it in some of the most amazing pictures. His name is Chris Terrell and his work is something to behold!
Chris recently took this photo that I posted on facebook that essentially encapsulates the raw beauty of Anacortes. Please take a moment to peruse some of his many photos on his facebook profile and be sure to visit his website to see all this very talented man can do with a camera using Anacortes and all the island as the backdrop…and the place we call home.

Since it was reported yesterday that we had a new member of our Orca family arrive with the birth of a baby Orca in the J Pod, I thought I’d post this piece from the Anacortes Chamber or Commerce on the active Whale Watching opportunities we have here in beautiful Anacortes.
The San Juan Islands provide one of the best whale watching opportunities anywhere in the world, offering protected waters and a huge variety of wildlife, which include our three pods of resident Orca whales.
Anacortes is known as the “Home Port” to the San Juan Islands and is the perfect departure point for guaranteed whale watching and wildlife cruises. Situated in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands provide calm waters (sea-sickness is very rare!), sunny skies, and an incredible backdrop for your whale watch adventures.
Only 80 miles north of Seattle, we are connected to the Washington mainland by bridges so visitors can drive directly to us for hassle free wildlife viewing.
If you are visiting the northwest or are lucky enough to live here, don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
The moment you walk in the door of this stunning Anacortes Waterfront Home, the charm & casual elegance embraces you. Welcome to 4602 Schooner!

Antique heart-pine floors from North Carolina, custom lighting, custom built-in’s throughout, surround sound in Living Room & Master Bedroom and there’s even an elevator that takes you to any floor in the house!
Along with stylish Plantation shutters & blinds, the comfort of radiant floors in all the Bathrooms and HUGE laundry room clearly define this outstanding property proving that EVERY detail was thoughtfully planned.
The best part…this homes sits on a Premier lot which insures your views of the Islands and the Ferry will never by compromised!
One of my favorite weekends of the year is coming up as we celebrate the works of nearly 90 Northwest Artists creating some of the most unique pieces I’ve ever seen! This festival is really one of a kind and a must see for anyone interested is seeing some of the most creative artisans and best music around! I’m also very proud since John L. Scott is one of the sponsors of this event.
A LITTLE HISTORY
The Anacortes Arts and Crafts Festival got its start in 1962 as the brain-child of Dr. Jack Papritz and a group of dedicated community arts patrons. The idea came from Dr. Papritz’s European travels, specifically the Parisienne Montmartre – a French open-air cafe.
With the support of the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, and $300 in seed money, the first festival in July of 1962 was billed as “the longest art display in the world.” In the 50 years since that simple beginning, the Festival has grown into one of the largest and most respected Festivals in the northwest.
THE EARLY FESTIVAL
In it’s early years, the main emphasis of the Festival was fine art in a festive atmosphere. There were judged pieces in both amateur and professional divisions, a youth art exhibit, and a venue for artists of all levels to display their work. Throughout its history, this commitment to art has remained constant and today is realized in the Art at the Port exhibition that showcases cutting edge northwest art through Invitational and Juried shows.
I hope to see you all this weekend for this wonderful event. If you need any information on where to park or accommodations, please feel free to give me a call at 360-333-9975 or send me a message.
