Hiking from Fort Warden to North Beach lets you explore these historic bunkers, a walk in the forest, and vistas across to Whidbey Island and Canada. For sure, it’s a fun place for a photo shoot with lots of textures and interesting backgrounds. Strolling the car-free trails is dog- and kid-friendly too. Make sure to visit the bunkers during your next trip to PT! (aka Port Townsend)
I’ve posted several photos of the Freedom Tower from our summer visit to Manhattan but, thought I’d post another one in remembrance of 9/11. Here’s a night scene at Washington Square, full of locals, tourists and talented troubadours, feeling safe and secure with the illuminated Freedom Tower growing beautiful, strong and tall in the background. New York City is such a vibrant, incredible city and it’s inspiring to see its amazing recovery after 9/11.
The Freedom Tower reminds us of what was lost, but, also lifts our spirits by symbolizing the resiliency and spirit of New York City and our country.
