October 28 – Port Orford, Oregon

Woke up to fog this morning, pretty heavy so we delayed taking off.

Fog never lifted and we took off at 10 AM. Missed a lot of scenery as we traveled and couldn’t see too far in the distance – pod (8)missed a lot of ocean and sand dune scenery.

Arrived at Camp Blanco RV Park in Port Orford. Small campground along the highway but clean and paved roads, small sites with full hookups.

Port Orford is a small fishing village and the oldest city on the coast. The harbor is one of six in the world that everyday hoist – Dolly Docks – the commercial boats in and out of the water.

After getting set up we visited the VC but they were not open and didn’t even have hours listed. We did see surfers in the parking lot wrapping it up for the day – didn’t see any action.

Sunday no church nearby so we will have to meditate on the beauty of God’s Creation – easy to do in Oregon!

Oregon Coast wildlife.

Went off to explore the local highlights. First saw the Hughes House.

Then the Camp Blanco Lighthouse built in 1870 (oldest continually working lighthouse in state).

Then the Coast Guard Lifeboat Saving Station built in 1934, now a museum.

Monday Brenda wanted to catch up on her genealogy paper work.  I took the dogs and walked the trails at the Life station museum.

The rocks that are sticking out of the ocean are called Sea Stacks.

Also walked the beach where the Indians and explorers fought called Battle Rock.

Went out to eat at Redfish and the food was excellent – had Oyster shooters, Scallops and Seafood Risotto.pod (55)
