If you like lighthouses-this is one to see. I have planned to see this for four years after I found its website. It sits on a bluff in the center of Fort Casey on Whidbey Island. The lighthouse, is staffed by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers, who also expertly maintain it. They keep it in pristine shape as a treasure of the state of Washington. Just below the lighthouse are the retractable cannons of the fort. Visitors are free to wander the parapets, the command center, and enjoy the view of the waterways. Deer graze near the lighthouse, and are not intimidated by people (I saw kids and dogs within 5 feet of two of them.) Visitors travel thourgh the fort grounds on the way to the lighthouse. The scenery between Coupeville and Fort Casey is beautiful to breathtaking (at least if you're a city boy from the midwest as I am).
