Lighthouses and Rambling November 3, 2013

Florence, Oregon High 52 Low 45

It rained quite a bit of the night again. Today was partly cloudy in the morning and more rain this afternoon. Our daughter called this morning and said it was snowing in Salt Lake. Rain is better than snow anytime.

Last night we had to turn all the clocks back for the end of Day Light Savings time. The bad thing is that it takes me a while to get used to the clock changes. And yes, it reminds me of the old joke: You cut one end of the blanket off and sew it onto the other end to make the blanket longer. (Somehow it doesn't work.)

We plan on moving a little further down the coast tomorrow (about 30 miles). We are really burning up the highway going south. LOL Our plan right now is to stay in Lakeside for 3 days and then move over to the Escapee Park in Sutherlin for almost a week. Nothing is set in stone, however. We plan on getting home sometime around the 15th of the month, but that is still subject to change, depending on the weather.

Tonight I have included some pictures of some of the Oregon Lighthouses we have seen on this trip. We missed some of them in the north part of the state. The first picture is of the lighthouse north of Newport. The second is on the south end of Newport. As you can see from the picture, it was built into the living quarters and sit on a small hill. The third one is about halfway between Newport and Florence. It is a ways away from any town, and we couldn't drive up to it like the other two.

To the right is the fire look-out tower.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. We loved exploring the lighthouses along the Oregon coast. Glad to hear you aren't over doing the miles driven.

    1. Really no sense in over doing the driving. LOL
