Another beach walk at Fort Ward

This time Dad was with us so we took it slow and went along the beach first, then up the hill at the second set of bunkers and wound our way through the woods, descending by the massive bunkers at the top of the hill near the park entrance. A nice spur hike from this trail goes to Port Blakely. The woods were fairly dry and leaves are budding. The massive runoff waterfall was just a trickle compared to its winter glory.

The crocuses are popping up! I love these wildflowers. Go crocuses, go! Push your way up to the sun!
