A few days ago we took a very nice day drive with friends along the Coast. We started in Florence and drove just south of Yachats to begin our driving tour.
The town you see is Yachats…home of the Yachats mushroom festival which Jeff and I always attend when visiting the area.
We then drove to a scenic overlook…
We stopped at this scenic area on the way to Heceta head lighthouse.We found out they were filming a childrens Wildlife series..here…
There is a bed below in the middle of everyone..the headboard has shells and fishing nets attached to it.. We walk up to the lighthouse And were lucky to be just in time for a tour The most distant building with red roof below was one of the lightkeepers homes. There were several lightkeepers many years ago.
You can read about the lighthouse here..
They just received a grant to restore some of the old features back to the lighthouse.. The staircase is free standing… Another view of the light keepers home..now a bed and breakfast. We continue our road trip…see the light house in the distance? Below us….hundreds of sea lions And more views..Of the very scenic coastline And lighthouse..
My new computer seems to be running fine..
A slow process adding software, changing settings, importing data..
But so far I am really liking windows 7.
Hope to be Tweeting, facebooking and visiting blogs soon.
