Fort Worden

Ft Worden is another beautiful State Park here in Washington. The US feared an attack by the new steam-powered, iron hulled battleships and built forts at just about every major harbor entrance in the nation and Ft Worden was one of 3 protecting Puget Sound and particularly Bremerton Naval Shipyard.
It was named after the commander of the Monitor of Merrimac and Monitor fame, Adm John L Worden and was established in 1902

That's Sharon in the foreground. She is off to Iraq in June so we will be seeing a lot of Washington between now and then, if the rain lets up.
