We moved to Anacortes from Everett in late 1999, a year or so after I took early retirement from Boeing. We love it here. The people are very friendly. We've made many good friends and there are lots of things going on all year.
My sister, who lives in the UK, says Anacortes is where God takes his vactions and it's the only place we've lived in the US that she's jealous.
We were lucky to get into our house before there was a big spike in values. We paid $185K for it and four years later it was appraised by the county taxman at $325K. It's now dropped back to about $240K.
We'll leave here in wooden boxes, barring Alzheimer's or similar catastrophies.
