Next light northward on the Oregon coast is the inactive Yaquina Bay Light in Newport. Lots of historical stuff inside for the life of the keepers.


A few miles away is the light that replaced the one in town, the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It’s a beauty, still in operation, 168 steps to the top. Lots and lots of great photos there. This one is my favorite.


Next up is Cape Meares Lighthouse - A short one high on a bluff


Tillamook Rock Lighthouse has been shown before, just gotta include it again to have a complete list ;)


The final shot is of the US Lightship Columbia, which was anchored off the mouth of the Columbia River from 1951 to 1979. She was the 4th ship to serve there. Now she is at the maritime museum in Astoria...

Finally getting progress on my July lighthouse tour photos... started at the southern end of Oregon and worked our way north.

First up is Cape Blanco Lighthouse


Then the Coquille River light in the town of Bandon


Next up, the Cape Arago Lighthouse, not accessible except viewing...


Then the Umpqua River Lighthouse. This one was unique in our experience, when you get to the top of the tower you are actually coming up *inside* the lens assembly (a beautiful intact first-order Fresnel lens from Paris). More pics of that later...


Then the most photographed light in the state, supposedly, the Heceta Head Lighthouse.

I am really going to try & get up there this year. I had the opportunity to take a 4-day sail aboard the 1924 wooden schooner Zodiac out of Bellingham, it was wonderful fun...

Beautiful! Intense greens, lines leading the eye, lovely spread of rock and wood textures, you got it all... A wall hanger for sure. Would look great on a metal or acrylic print, I bet...

Thanks for the pic, she’s a beautiful boat... If I was in the market it’d be nice to have one, but I’m not.

Love it. Oregon and Washington ocean beaches have this lovely salt haze that gives you the fuzzy horizons with no transitions. At least no sharp ones. ;). Add fog banks and headlands, you get gorgeous scenes.

Don’t think I’ve ever encountered that phrase before. But if it means someone who dealt with ones and zeroes, yep... 30+ yrs of it.

The state of Montana used to have the speed limit of “reasonable and prudent”. Man, that was fun! Now it’s 80, still ok but not quite as much fun.

I took this shot a couple of weeks ago, on what could definitely be a theme for vacations. Mine, anyway... Snapshots of scenery and cool skyscapes, taken one-handed through the windshield while rolling down the highways. In this case, crossing Wyoming on the way home from picking up the new puppy in Iowa. Cruise control set at 85 mph, just enjoying the scenery.

(picture a razzberry aimed your direction) Proof that this crowd can twist anything around! Of my 30 years federal service, 17 of them were with the Survey, 13 Air Force. It was all water-related database stuff though, not mapping. :)
