The Sound from the park
A view of Puget Sound
Robert and I took Mom to the Des Moines Beach Park to walk the trails. It is a pretty hike, especially right now with the leaves changing colors. This park site was homesteaded in 1872 and in the 1880s, a sawmill was built on the stream. Soon, the park will become a National Historic Landmark. Best of all though, it is about 10 minutes from home.
