We’ve left Oregon and traveled up to Spokane where our granddaughter will fly in on Tuesday. We’ll drive up to Glacier National Park with her. These photos were all taken north of Bandon, Oregon during June.
Umpqua River Lighthouse
All Fresnel lens are exquisite but this ruby red one is mesmerizing at night. It was manufactured in 1890 in Paris.
The beam signal is 2 white, 1 red. I lightened the photo up and here its possible to see the colors emanating from the beam.
We toured the inside of the lighthouse.
Sunlight coming through the lens.

The view out to sea from Umpqua River Lighthouse.
Yaquina Bay Lighthouse
We reached this lighthouse which is in Newport after it closed.
Yaquina Head Lighthouse
This lighthouse is situated right over the Pacific Ocean three miles north of Newport. It was close to dark.
The rocks offshore are a nesting place for many types of birds. These are young bald eagles. The low light didn’t make for good photos and we don’t have a strong telephoto lens (yet).
Here you can see the other birds scatter away when the eagle flies by.
This egg was lying on the ground by the lighthouse. It was quite large.
Heading out we drove by the harbor in Newport at sunset.
