Getting close to the end of the month and time to move to a new park. We have now volunteered at 3 Washington State Parks and by far Dosewallips is our favorite. I think one of the reason is the park staff here, they work together as a team and promote the park in a positive manner. We will certainly miss everyone here as we move on to a new adventure. We will be at Manchester State Park Nov & Dec. We will be close to my brother Gene and his family, and will be able to visit some. I will let you all know how Manchester is after we get over there. Until then here is some pictures of staff and fall colors at Dosewallips.

I wish I could take credit for some pictures I am going to put on here, but I can't. a local person here in Brinnon is the person behind the camera. I don't even know his name, but I thank him for sharing. I will post one or two pictures as I can. Hope you enjoy these as much as I have.

Miss Dosewallips, a cantankerous old cow Elk with a reputation for not liking campers made an appearance in the park today, she meandered her way through the park and left without an incident. the herd was across the highway in the day use park.

A new month and a new adventure, we are back at Dosewallips State Park. We left Fort Flagler at crack of noon today, pulled into Dosewallips just before 1:00 pm. Long trip of 38 miles. It felt almost like coming home when we pulled into the park. We will be here for the month. then onto a new park, Manchester State Park. It is close to Port Orchard and Bremerton, so we will be close to my brother there.
We did enjoy our stay at Fort Flagler, I used up a 5 gal bucket of primer using a 3" brush on some cedar siding. So don't care if I see a paint brush for awhile. Vicki worked in the museum and she enjoyed doing that. We really enjoyed the deer in the park, they were always entertaining to watch. They really liked it when the apples started falling from the trees. We also enjoyed watching all the ship traffic on Admiralty Straight. Just about any type of boat or ship you can imagine sailed up and down the Straight. A real treat was to see a couple of submarines leaving and returning.
I will leave you with a couple of pictures.

Until later God bless you all and take care.
