Waterfront Sights

Anacortes, Washington

Q Ave east of downtown

After getting dinner in Anacortes, I usually take a walk around town, and often end up along the waterfront where I like checking out the boats in the marina. There are a few sculptures in the area, most notably the Seafarer's Memorial.
