On Location Series #11–Fort Washington Park

This was a delightful day.  My little one and I explore Fort Washington Park which was the namesake of its location in Fort Washington, MD.    Fort Washington, established near the community of Fort Washington, Maryland, was for many decades the only defensive fort protecting Washington D.C. The original fort, overlooking the Potomac River, was built in 1809.  It was originally called  Fort Warburton but was renamed in 1808.  During the War of 1812, the fort was demolished by its own garrison during a British advance.

As of today, this historic fort is maintained by the National Park Service.  It was initially constructed in 1824. It is a stone structure with a reliable cannon directed down the Potomac River. The fort was largely remodeled in the 1840s and 1890s. The Fort was turned over to the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1946 after its last military personnel left.

Now with that bit of history out of the way, here are some videos and pictures of our time in the park.  Our visit took place on November 3, 2018.  I hope you will enjoy this brief On Location Series—

oh again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

“It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than try to be a little kinder.”
– Aldous Huxley

He gave way to the essence of one’s self in relationship to society to which society was growing way too fast; devolving into an insensitive authority. He look at the way of how so many things are very antisocial. You are just a number in a machine. The working environment of a collective state called society.

Aldous Huxley, as I can gather, warned against us as a whole, giving up control of our lives to the governing power with no need of an aggression as a mandate. The mandate is what we see in the form…
