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:

Watching the other boats from the ferry.
A chilly ferry ride.
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.
This room was was dark and creepy. The only light here is from my camera flash. Did this stop Baby Boy from exploring? Nope.
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 the right is a steep drop off into the fort.
Taking a break with Nana.
The hill makes a fun slide.
It was another really fun day!
He was completely worn out from all the fun.
