Lunch and Another Lighthouse November 5, 2013

Lakeside, Oregon High 55 Low 48

It rained all night again. It was dizzily pretty much all day.

This is the Park we are stay in.

We wanted to try fish and chips on the coast, and I asked the receptionist if she knew a good place to get them. She told us that the little cafe in Lakeside had good food for a reasonable price. We had seen their home of the $5.00 dollar dinner on the way to the RV Park, and with her recommendation we went there. It looked busy, so we decided to try it. It was every bit as good as she said it was. Their prices looked very good on the rest of the food they served. If you are ever in the area, it is well worth a stop. It is located on 8th street and Lake Road in Laketown. It is a little off highway 101. I don’t know where else you could buy a biscuits and gravy breakfast for $1.99, but we might try it tomorrow.  The fish and chips cost $6.99 and there was enough food that neither of us felt like having dinner tonight. We had thought about driving to Coos Bay or Reedsport, but this was only 1/2 mile away from us. They actually have $3.99 and $4.99 menu items.
This was a lot of good food.

After lunch we went to the Umpqua River Lighthouse. Unfortunately the museum and light house were closed for tours today, so we didn't get to go in. The information sign, which I have included, say that the light can be seen for 19 miles. It was originally built in 1857, and was destroyed by flooding in 1861 and rebuilt and illuminated by 1894.

The ocean that we could see looked quite rough today. The picture I put on is the waves going up the river. The picture is fuzzy because of the rain and fog.


Thanks for visiting.
