ON THE BACK BURNER

july15

This was an exploring day. We hiked around Fort Worden, saw some bunkers built for the First World War. Port Townsend wanted to be prepared for attack. I was under the mistaken thought that the bunkers were built for the WW11. They really knew how to build cement bunkers back in the day. And Fort Worden still has the Officer quarters and enlisted men's barracks still usable. The state took over the park years ago and it is a thriving arts and crafts and camping facility. They will soon be offering a course in log house building..no nails. I just missed the wooden boat classes. Dang. The instructors are master craftsmen and the people who take these courses are dedicated to learning new skills.  Our weather is wonderful. So many days in a row for this weather is special. My son threw out clover and common vetch seed over the grass and clover that we wacked down. Now we will have to water. Who knew that we would hit a patch of dry weather just when we could use some rain to get the seeds germinated. I guess that it is true that life is like a box of chocolates. And I have some Hershey's kisses in the freezer for just such an occasion.
