My brother and I drove out there on a fairly mild day. My dad Jack gives tours in the lighthouse and it’s become a bit of a tradition to drive out and visit him when I’m back in Port Orford. My dad is very suited for the job being a history buff and a talker. He brings Annie dog out who fits in perfectly with the surroundings.
The lens is intriguing, a gigantic series of magnifying glasses that rotates 24 hours a day, rain or shine. The lens was shipped over from France 140 years ago. The detail is intriguing and has almost no marks except for the a few spots that were marked by vandals in the early 1990’s.
Such a beautiful spot, Cape Blanco is one of those places that I will never tire seeing. There are no two days alike out on the rocky coast.
Bonus: Seeing little porcupines wandering happily, a beautiful campground right down the path, an amazing beach to walk on and a bounty of mushrooms in the fall.
