Fort Abercrombie state park and the Military History museum were our main plan for the day as well as to hopefully find the “WWII Cemetery”. The museum was open from 1:00-4:00pm, so there was no need to get too early of a start. We looked for the cemetery first but it wasn’t on googlemaps we discovered later that is because it is just called the Old American Cemetery. We decided to do Taco Bell/KFC taken to Mill Beach for a in the car picnic (it was spitting a bit and looking like rain). We watched the waves come in and go out. Some people were combing the beach, so we watched them too. After we finished eating we explored a little. The sights were amazing, but with the breeze off of the water it was a little cold.
There were fun wild flowers blooming. Below you can see my fingers holding a Chocolate lily. And the one below that we are thinking must be the fire weed although it is hard to tell, it doesn’t exactly look like the pictures I have seen.
We hiked down to the lake on our way back to the car. There are many beautiful hikes in Fort Abercrombie park.
