Fort Casey State Park welcomes visitors to its battlements and charming Admiralty Head Lighthouse. The fort's 10-inch disappearing guns are now aimed across busy shipping lanes filled with freighters, and passenger ships, as well as naval cruisers, aircraft carriers, and submarines. The Admiralty Lighthouse was vacant until World War II, when Fort Casey was reactiviated. Following the war, the lighthouse again stood empty for a brief time before the Island County Historical Society initiated a restoration effort. Today the lighthouse is home to a gift shop and a museum. The park offers spectacular views of Admiralty Inlet and the Strait of Juan de Fuca and is a great place to fly a kite, throw a frisbee or explore the bunker network.
The Lady Washington is a replica of the brig that traded in the waters around Puget Sound and the west coast of the North Amnerican continent in the 1790's. It was built in Abedeen, Washington as part of the Washington centennial project. Its main mission is education. Sailing 364 days a year, it travels up and down the West Coast, providing tours, as well as short and long cruises. School kids, familys, and adults can take a tour of the brig, go on a 3 hour cruise, or even join her on a week long cruise.

We enjoyed the day in Coupvillewaiting for the other tall ships that were scheduled to arrive. Marv is responsible for letting us know the instant they come into view.

Having fun during a visit to famous Toby's restaurant and bar, also in Coupeville, the second oldest town in the entire state. It has over 100 buildings listed in the National Historic Register.

Strolling along Joseph Whidbey State Park offers stunning views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the San Juan Islands, and Vancouver Island.
