An Anniversary and a birthday were all we needed for a visit to Fort Casey State Campground on Whidbey Island, for a close-at-hand getaway. Ft. Casey is a small campground surrounded on one side by a big park and the other Puget Sound. For exploration there are a number of interesting old 1900 batteries that once housed guns to offset an invasion by sea. Add a beautiful lighthouse, stunning views, and wind-battered old growth trees leaves one satiated with beauty and history.
The prairie nearby and the town of Coupeville are added bonuses for hiking, eating and exploring. Because of fishing season, we barely got a camp site, but luck was with us. The very last site was ours, but only after we observed a truck and boat trailer were parked in one. We guessed they might not be staying, asked, and sure enough, they were about to leave.
