Fort Worden – Port Townsend

Spooky comes to my backyard...I was out clearing trails and smelled something rank. I uncovered a few leaves to find a mostly-decayed carcass. A little research revealed this to be an o'possum. Exciting! It's now hanging from a stump near the trail so I can hang a candle under it for the annual haunted Halloween trail party ;)

Fort Worden has great history to explore and huge open areas to play.

The Coast Artillery Museum was a hit with my dad, an Army artillery guy for many years.

And even some tunnels. I howled like a coyote in here - very loud echo chamber! The kids were pretty embarrassed after getting over being spooked ... heh heh heh :)
