Visiting Borst Park

Our in-laws is about a 3.5 hour drive away.  As we were driving home, I found out there was an accident on the way.  So, it was a good idea to find something to do while waiting out the accident.
I stopped off at  Fort Borst Park in Centralia.  I had no idea this was such a large park - 101 acres!  As I was driving around the park I decided to follow the signs the Borst Home and that was an excellent choice.
We were the only ones in the section of the park!
Lots of beautiful flowers

The Borst school house
The boys wondering if anyone is in school?

Lots and lots of smells and colorful flowers

Off to check out the orchard

"What is this thing?"

It's an Oregon Trail marker

The boys having an excellent time

Checking out the Skookumchuck River

On the path to the Borst Home

This house is a registered national historical place

D'light scanning for critters

More gardens
Lots of heirloom tomato plants

Pretty grape vines

King says "Life is good!"

The Borst house in the background

Love the dark sunflowers

Pretty Zinnias

And the sunflowers we're all familiar with

What a lovely detour and so much better than sitting in traffic!

Working on recall with King
Time to head back to car and get home!
