WA Heritage Geo Adventure - Fort Nisqually

This past weekend we got to spend some time with Pappy.  We decided to mark off one of boxes for the Washington Heritage Geo Adventure.  We headed to Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington.  We followed 5 mile Drive. This is a sprawling  park that includes the historic Fort Nisqually.

We started by making a detour to Owen Beach.  It was relatively uncrowded for a Saturday probably because earlier it was rainy and gloomy.  I love the cement sidewalk that runs along the beach.  It was perfect for Pappy's walker. My son found a lot of sea glass against the sea wall. We saw a dog who had found a stick that just so happened to be 5 foot long.  The dog was so proud of it.

After our detour we headed to Fort Nisqually.  Along the way, we saw numerous raccoons.  It appears that people are feeding them.  We struggled a bit to find this geocache but eventually our geo sense kicked in.  It was fun to walk the outside of the fort. Fort Nisqually is a living history museum.  We didn't go into the actual fort for the geocache.
