Here’s one of my favorite shots from my recent trip to Fort Flagler State Park. This was taken in a military fire station bermed into an overlook onto Port Townsend Bay and Puget Sound.
The room has an openwork grid ceiling that makes irresistible light patterns. Can you see why I like Fort Flagler?
We spent a couple of days at Fort Flagler State Park last week. It is an historic park with a number of military batteries built for coastal protection in the early 20th century. In addition to its being a beautiful location the old fortifications are worth exploring.
We camped at Fort Flagler recently. The backdrop of the Olympic Mountains along the shore of Port Townsend Bay is always a beautiful sight. And it’s only an hour from Sequim.
Sunset was memorable the night we camped at Fort Flagler last month.
We spent some enjoyable beach time when we went to Fort Flagler recently. It was beautiful weather for being on or near the water.
We camped at Fort Flagler State Park last week. These are the clouds that greeted us when we arrived. But luck was with us. It didn’t rain until our last night there.
Fort Flagler is great place to explore. It is one of a triad of Puget Sound forts built in the late 1800s to early 1900s to protect the region. In addition to interesting gun emplacements and buildings that were part of the fort the campgrounds are surrounded by beaches. There are hiking trails through forested areas and along high bluffs overlooking Puget Sound. All this is at Marrowstone Island, an hour’s drive from Sequim.
This is a window in a bunker at Fort Flagler State Park last week. I liked the strong shadow under it but wasn’t so impressed when I got it home. So I fooled around with it in Photoshop until it hummed a happier tune.
