Fort Flagler

Hello friends and Happy Monday to you all!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We spent the weekend camping at Fort Flagler with friends.

Fort Flagler is a very old historic military fort that is surrounded on three sides by salt water shoreline and overlooks the Puget Sound, Cascade and Olympic Mountains. It is one of our very favorite places to camp.

You can see Port Townsend from the beach and watch the ferry's go back and forth all day.

We hiked the 21/2 miles to the old bunkers where they had at one time eight big guns but have long since been removed and tried to imagine what it was like when the fort was in use.
It was a perfect day, sunny with a great breeze. We had several kites flying along with a lot of other people so the sky was dotted with colorful kites all Saturday afternoon.
 
There was also someone that made a stage out of the back deck of his toy hauler and they had people singing all day until early evening.


We also hiked the beach and let the dogs swim in the ocean and the kids played in the sand as we watched a pair of bald eagles high above us in the trees searching the shoreline for food.


We were lucky enough to see a navy ship being escorted by the Coast Guard out to sea.
At night after dinner we sat by the campfire for a few hours then played board games before going to bed.

Camping in such wonderful places is so relaxing. Already looking forward to our next mini camping trip!

What are some of your favorite places to camp at?

At Our Beautiful World the word for the week is Animal. I haven't played with them in months so it is great to be back and able to play along and admire everyone's beautiful photos. Please drop by their lovely blog. I am sure they would love to have you play along with them.
