Join in with members of the Kitsap Branch on the first drawing and painting hike of our newly formed Mountaineers Art committee. From the parking lot we will head east along the beach for awhile until we find a place that offers good drawing and painting opportunities. We'll stop and spend a 1/2 hour here sketching. We'll continue on around Marrowstone Point and along the shores of Admiralty Inlet where we will stop again for another 1/2 hour of sketching. Then we'll head inland and up 1/4 mile to battery Wansboro perched high on the bluff and along the interconnecting trails, stopping once more for a 1/2 hour sketch and then back to our starting point. Bring whatever drawing and painting materials you want to use that can be easily carried in your backpack along the hike. Flagler State Park is a 784-acre marine camping park surrounded on three sides by 19,100 feet of saltwater shoreline. The park rests on a high bluff overlooking Puget Sound, with views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. Many historic buildings remain at this 19th-century-established military fort.
