The Mrs. and I took a little day trip to Fort Flagler, one of the three forts guarding (or once guarding) the waterway leading to Seattle. The other two - Fort Worden and Fort Casey - were visible across the water. This fort is just south of Port Townsend (but a little farther to drive than you think because you have to drive around the Bay to Marrowstone).
Fort Flagler has lots of trails, a campground & RV area, plenty of beach, tall bluffs with great views, a small museum, bunkers to explore, and even old remodeled houses to rent (I bet staying here on a full moon would be magical with the surrounding water and the lack of street lights). Don't forget, these days you'll need a Discover Pass to park at Fort Flagler (and every State park it seems), but this was totally worth it!

P.S. After looking through the fort museum and reading about the rich history of the place I decided to give my pics from this trip the black and white treatment. Enjoy!
