Cape Blanco Area Photo Album
Saturday 14 July 2012 — Category: Outings
four-day, 800-mile photo outing to the southern coast of Oregon (south of Bandon) in May 2012, I took about 2,000 pictures. The first day I explored the area from Floras Lake in the north, down about 32 miles to Otter Point in the south. In between, I made stops at Cape Blanco, Port Orford, and Sisters Rocks.
I had lunch in Port Orford, at Griff’s On the Dock. The meal was OK, but nothing special. It was VERY windy at the Cape Blanco lighthouse — I didn’t take the tour inside, but just took shots from outside. I had read that Floras Lake was full of windsurfers, but when I stopped by, there were only two out there.
Sisters Rocks was quite interesting, with a big underground cave through which waves would roll in and splash on the rocks. Otter Point didn’t even seem like the Oregon coast, with its unusual sandstone rock formations sculpted by wind and waves. At the end of the day I arrived in Gold Beach for an excellent dinner at Spinner’s Seafood, Steak & Chop House.
Maybe I’m a bit trigger-happy, because during the five hours it took me to explore the sites along these 32 miles, I took about 700 photos — 35% of all the photos I took during the entire trip! But don’t worry — I've done all the hard work of sorting through the shots, so you can simply enjoy browsing through the cream of the crop.
Thirteen pictures of cows, goats and horses ended up in their own separate album — Domestic Animals 2012. The other 42 best photos can be found in the Cape Blanco Area 2012 photo album — the third of numerous albums from this trip.
