June ended with a farewell to the Peregrine Falcons and a couple of nice images of the Yaquina
Lighthouse, both taken in early morning.
From Newport I headed south about 50 miles to Florence. About 12 miles north of the town is a large overlook with a view of Heceta Lighthouse. Often there are sea lions on the rocks below and many birds. It’s an excellent place to spend some time so the morning of July
that’s where I went. There were two eagles out over the water and despite wrong settings on the camera I managed to get one.
Both the sea lion and the eagle were a good distance away so the images are cropped a great deal but still fun to share.
The OR coast has many beaches and the public has access to a lot of them. The town called Seal Rock and saw some impressive sea stacks.
Further south is a very nice NFS campground outside Port Orford, green grass, big shade trees for the trailer but good sun for the solar and a creek right behind my site. Very
peaceful and a wonderful place to relax and unwind for a few days. Port Orford has its share of sea stacks, too, with some good view points.
The beaches here seem to be made up mostly of very rounded smooth stones, most of fairly good size. Very often there is lots of driftwood, from huge logs down to small pieces. All with very rounded edges, as with the rocks they seem to have been there for eons, and the sea has worked on the wood as it has on the rocks.
