Weekend at Ft. Worden

My son and I are part of the Mercer Island Y-Guides program, in a nice group of boys from West Mercer called the "Screaming Wolves". We spent last weekend at Fort Worden, not far from Port Townsend on the Olympic Penninsula.

Watch the video:

Fathers of boys and girls from kindergarten through third grade are encouraged to join the Y-guides, and for some reason Mercer Island has one of the highest participation rates in the country (I'm told that the girls' group has the highest). Back in Neillsville when I was a boy, we had cub scouts, but I don't see much scouting activity here. Hopefully that changes with older kids.
