got it on the first try….


When we came to Port Orford two summer ago..we made a few trips towards Cape Blanco..once again I was driving Doug crazy wanting a perfect shot of the lighthouse  and every time we went there it was shrouded in fog..

Fast forward to today…another beautiful sunny day..not a cloud in sight…I am thinking perfect..great day to head to Cape Blanco again…maybe we will be lucky enough to only have to make the one trip this year!!.



can you see the lighthouse in the ‘cutout part’ of the sign??


there it is..surrounded by blue sky and no fog bank in sight!!IMG_6265IMG_6269IMG_6270IMG_6267

next stop after admiring the views?…boy was it windy!!!!IMG_6276IMG_6273

we drove through Cape Blanco State Park..nothing like the smell of campfire!!..



we drove down to the beach..only in America can you do this..I always feel like we are breaking the can this be right?..


Tucker loves to ‘break the rules’..if it means he can chase his ball…

another quiet day..this vacationing is hard work..our afternoon was spent sitting in the sunshine….so as another day ends….we are a bit sunburnt…..but life is great in Port Orford….

Tucker is watching TV with his ‘Dad’!!…both of them are trying really hard to keep their eyes open!…



  1. Glad you got your shot of the lighthouse. I almost bought a lighthouse in Northern Minnesota, about 15 years ago.
