Seafarer’s Memorial, Anacortes WA

_DSC6605Seafarer’s Memorial is an iconic monument located on the Fidalgo Bay waterfront of Anacortes, WA.

This is a memorial to all local fisherman who have lost their lives at sea.

Perhaps it’s appropriate that I photographed this on a grey day with a storm passing to the east.

There are always flowers here as a tribute to husbands, fathers, sons, grandfathers, and uncles who met an untimely end in this local revered but dangerous occupation.
