Escaping the heat, Part 2

Yesterday's post was getting a bit long, so I thought I'd split the info about our glorious day and continue today...

Upon leaving the boat show, Princess Sassy suggested we drive around town and enjoy the grand, mostly Victorian, architecture of Port Townsend.

Our travels led us to Fort Worden, now a state park and conference center.  When entering, the beauty of the grounds with wide open lawns and historic, old military housing captured our attention.  

Driving further, it was a complete change of scenery, as we soon saw expansive views of Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca bordering a campground. 

Along the water's edge were bunkers/gun emplacements, remnants of bygone military presence in the Fort.  The kids wanted to get out of the car, explore, and take more photos.

We described to him how to zoom in, and he did a great job!

To be fair, I need to say that Princess Sassy took this one,
as she did other photos with me in them

We ended the day at one of our favorite area restaurants, The Boat Shed, in Manette, a picturesque and homey section of Bremerton, WA.                                                                                                                                      
Outdoor dining over the water, with beautiful views and sunset, all while eating a great plate of halibut and chips for only $15.  With all that and the great company, too, it's an unbeatable combination!
