Whidbey Island

Standard

On Monday morning, we took a ferry over to Whidbey Island.  We drove around a bit, and Mark picked Fort Casey State Park for us to explore.  It was a cooler, overcast day, but we had a great time exploring.  Fort Casey was built in 1897 and was modified for use in WWI and again for use in WWII.  The fort was placed in caretaker status in 1950, and in 1956 the WA State Parks and Rec Commission acquired the fort.  Fort Casey is one of the best examples of 19th century coastal fortifications in the nation.  Now for the fun pictures:

Do you know how many sharp edges, steep stairs, and drop-offs can be found at a historic fort?  A LOT

These rooms were great for echoes.  Baby Boy would stick out his lower lip and say, "woo-hoo!" to hear it echo.

Everyone was trying to keep up with Baby Boy and keep him safe.  We felt a little like the Secret Service guarding the president.  To the left is a steep drop off to the water.  To right is a steep drop off into the fort.
