On Saturday, we traveled 40 miles to Port Townsand and Fort Worden State Park taking a ferry to save 3 hours of driving around Seattle.
Before taking the ferry, we stopped at Fort Casey. Constructed in the late 1800s, Fort Casey was equipped for defense and used as a training facility up to the mid-1940s. The fort houses a pair of rare 10-inch disappearing guns. While the guns were the height of technology in the early 1900s, improvements in warships and the advent of airplanes soon rendered them obsolete. Two additional 3-inch mounted guns are also on display in their original emplacements.
