Warning: a picture heavy post!
I am continuing with the visit to Fort Worden State Park.
The above is a photo of what used to be the Commanding Officer’s quarters. It now houses a museum.
The following is a sampling of what is in the museum. (Taking pictures is allowed as long as no flash is used.)
*Clicking on any photo will give an enlarged view.
The pictures shown in yesterday’s post were taken at Fort Worden State Park located near Port Townsend.
It is a wonderful historic place to visit.
Fort Worden was an active US Army base from 1902 to 1953. It was named in honor of U.S. Naval Rear Admiral John Lorimer Worden.
Fort Worden was built as a strategic defense for Puget Sound.
There is hiking, camping, picnic, day use and more to experience.
Lucky me. I’ve caught a head cold. I am too tired to show more. I do have some photos from the museum at the Commanding Officer’s home. I’ll try to post those soon.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.
One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.
