We took the ferry to Port Townsend but stayed at a NFS campground called Klahanie. Two loops in the rainforest with hugh trees. Very interesting. Nearby was the town of Forks. There was a large well stocked grocery store there where we picked up supper. Sorry to say the National park was not very dog friendly so we didn't see much of it. Safe travels. Regards to Henry. Raz
There are a lot of very charming buildings to see at Fort Worden including a lighthouse and a castle like house that was built during the Victorian Era. There are also the old victorian era houses that the officers lived in. Fort Worden was the site for the movie "An Officer and a Gentleman".
There is a community center building that has a cafe and a restaurant in it. Nice place to go for a cup of coffee or sandwich.
At Fort Worden the organization "Centrum for the Arts" sponsors various arts and concert series events for all kinds of music all year around. Many of the events have workshops you can enroll for.
