Note, we are NOT in Oregon today. This is the rest of our day trip from June 5, 2013. Almost 2 years ago. Indeed, that long ago.
After we left the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, we were tired, but, still wanted to wander down to Bandon. So, we did. As you can see, it was still foggy, err, a day of sea mist.
Bandon has interesting entrances. The other side says, "We hope you are enjoying Bandon." Very clever.
Of course, I found purple flora:
Bandon has sea creatures:
Information on these can be found here. Washed Ashore: From Beach Trash to Ocean Art. Ingenious. By the way, in the fish's mouth, trash, even a busted up frisbee.
We drove around to get a photo of the lighthouse. Lots of sea mist, err, fog. It is officially known as the Coquille River Light. It first opened in 1896.
(I edited that photo, took out some of the fog.)
We had a wonderful and long day. I took over 200 photos. We skipped around in the sea mist and fog and sun all day long. So typically Oregon. Loved it!
* We still have over 2 months of this tour to report on. We returned home on or about August 20, 2013. Wow, just WOW!
