A Rare Sunny February Afternoon at Titlow Park and Hidden Beach
After meeting a client in University Place in the late morning, I had the afternoon free - a rare sunny afternoon in February. So I stopped nearby at Titlow Park on Puget Sound in West Tacoma. I had been there before for the restaurant and view from the dock, but on this afternoon I discovered much more of interest at the park.

From the lagoons I continued on the 1.3 mile loop trail. The trail leads through the woods and over a bridge with a nice view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Further on the trail leads to a derelict boating club, and then down onto Hidden Beach.
Hidden Beach was indeed hidden. Nobody else turned up at the beach while I was there.
