In May 2014 I made a 17-hour, one-day outing to the Oregon coast. Much of that time was spent hiking in the Tahkenitch Dunes area. For more details on that part of the trip, see my article The Amazing Diversity of the Tahkenitch Dunes and the companion Tahkenitch Dunes 2014 photo album.

However, the end of that hike didn't mean the end of my outing! After a short rest I continued my adventures, which involved making brief visits to three other coastal locations before finally heading home after sunset. First I drove my truck down to the beach on an obscure, four-mile road a not far north of the Umpqua River. Then I headed to Florence for dinner at the ever-popular Waterfront Depot restaurant. Finally, I spent the hour before sunset at the Heceta Head Lighthouse State Scenic Viewpoint.

Unlike my time at the Tahkenitch Dunes, I didn't take enough photos at any one of these three other location to warrant individual albums. Therefore, I've sorted through the 152 photos, whittling them down to the best 27 which are presented in this catch-all album.
For further details about the story behind the photos in this al­bum, see the related article, A Jet­ty, a Bridge, and a Light­house.
The photos in this album were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera.
