Fall adventures

Haunted trails for Halloween! I put ghosts up in the woods and lit the way with little candles in mason jars. Spoooooky but fun!

We still love wood chopping. Sam is a great "pencil-maker" - he does a good job with kindling.

Ben and I like to chop the big stuff.

If you’re looking for a good fall walk, try Fort Ward at the south end of Bainbridge. You can grab coffee in Lynwood Center, head out on a nice 5K walk along the water then up through the woods and back to the parking area at the boat ramp. Along the way you’ll see bunkers and gun batteries from WWI and WWII. There are restrooms along the way, but no drinking fountains. Bring your own snacks. Afterwards you can hit Hammy’s for burgers, Treehouse Cafe for a broad menu including great salads, the Boathouse for awesome deli sandwiches and coffee, and Island Cool for frozen yogurt. Adopt a cat at PAWS on the way home…

I got a little messy clinging to the mini-cliff hoping to stay dry, then bushwhacked my way back to the trail. I WAS clean for about an hour that day!
